LRP Media Group, a recognized leader in the special education publishing industry, has released Beyond the School Year: A Practical Guide to ESY Services. This new pamphlet examines the conditions under which extended school year services are necessary for districts to fulfill their IDEA obligations to provide a free appropriate public education to students with disabilities. It provides practical guidance for making decisions on which students should be eligible for ESY services and for how such services should be planned and delivered.

Beyond the School Year: A Practical Guide to ESY Services also covers the provision of ESY services during public health emergencies, such as the COVID-19 pandemic that disrupted the delivery of those services in many cases, and includes a non-exhaustive list of ESY services “dos and don’ts” best practices. It is available for purchase from LRP Publications’ online store.
