Dear Friend & Advocate
Your child's IEP team says she does not meet the "regression-recoupment standard" so she does not qualify for Extended School Year services. Not necessarily so!
Courts have held that schools may not use regression-recoupment as the only standard for determining if your child is eligible for ESY.
The Office of Special Education Programs and the Office for Civil Rights have issued policy letters requiring schools to look at other issues than regression and recoupment.
In this issue of the Special Ed Advocate, you will learn about legal standards for Extended School Year (ESY), advocacy strategies that will help you negotiate for ESY services, and decisions about ESY from federal courts.
Please don't hesitate to forward this series to other friends, families, or colleagues.
