    Child Study Team (CST) Testing and Meetings

    The District employs a summer CST to fulfill IEP testing and IEP meetings that need to occur beyond the school year.

    ESY for 2024

    If your child is eligible for our Extended School Year Program, please see below for details.

    The 2024 Extended School Year Program will run Monday - Thursday from July 1, 2024 through August 1, 2024, with the exception of July 4, 2024 when the District will be closed. The ESY program will take place at Copper Hill Elementary School. 

     The need for an Extended School Year will be discussed at your child's annual review meeting.  Qualifying criteria includes, but is not limited to, the following:

    1. Regression and recoupment - Is the child likely to lose critical skills or fail to recover these skills within a reasonable amount of time, more significantly than their typical peers?
    2. Emerging skills/breakthrough opportunities - Will a lengthy summer break cause significant problems for a child who is learning an instrumental skill or one that requires continued learning?
    3. Interfering behavior - Does the child's behavior interfere with his or her ability to benefit from special education and requires practice in social, emotional or behavioral regulation?
    4. Nature and/or severity of disability.
