Extended School Year (ESY) Services

Special education and related services provided beyond the normal school year for the purpose of providing a free, appropriate public education (FAPE).

Extended School Year (ESY) services are provided to students, grades PreK thru 12, whose Individualized Education Program (IEP) team decided that the benefits the student gained during the regular school year will be significantly jeopardized if the student does not receive ESY services.  All ESY services and transportation are provided free of charge as a part of the student's access to a free, appropriate public education (FAPE), in accordance with the Individuals with Disabilities Improvement Act (IDEIA) of 2004.

Virtual Extended School Year Services 

FCPS will provide Extended School Year (ESY) services virtually to students, grades PreK thru 12, whose IEP team determines that the gains made during the regular school year prior to the shutdown due to COVID-19 will be significantly jeopardized if the student does not receive ESY services.

This summer, ESY class-based services will be provided virtually to students June 29-July 24. The instruction will be provided through the distance learning model with synchronous sessions with students, learning materials available online, and packets sent through the mail to students.
