2018 July/August Extended School Year (ESY) application

 

If your district plans to operate a new ESY program or plan to modify an existing ESY program, an application must be submitted to NYSED by June 1, 2017.

 

Please be aware that there are two new programs: 9050 and 9055.  These were added to the continuum of placement options.  See questions 16 to 18 for more details at this link: http://www.p12.nysed.gov/specialed/applications/ESY/esy-2017/documents/questions-and-answers-extended-school-year-2017.pdf

 

The ESY programs are:

  • Full or half-day Special Class Programs (9000 or 9010)
  • Full-day or half-day Integrated ESY Special Class (9050 or 9055) -New!!!!
  • Specialized and/or Related Service Programs  (9015 A thru D)
    •  Related Services Only (9015-A)
    •  Specialized Instruction Only (9015-B)
    •  Specialized Instruction with Related Services (9015-C)
    •  Home/Hospital Instruction (HHI) (9015-D)

Read the 9015 application carefully because reimbursement is based on the specific types of programs students are receiving in the summer.  Since it is the beginning of annual reviews, if your district plans to provide ESY programs, we recommend that you review your current approved programs and compare them with your district’s current and predicted needs. 

 

When considering 9015 programs, please be reminded that education costs cannot be reimbursed through the STAC system if a student is receiving Specialized Instruction with Related services (9015-C) and your district is approved for Related Services Only (9015-A) and Specialized Instruction Only (9015-B).  To be eligible for reimbursement, in this case, the district must be approved for 9015-C. 

 

Contact Linda Keech from the Office of Special Education at (518) 473-0170 or email  Linda.Keech@nysed.gov  if you have any questions.  You can also contact your Regional Associate.
