How does a child qualify for extended school year? My difficult child is getting remedial reading and math for 3 days a week for 5 weeks this summer. It's a program that the district got Title I money for, but on his iep he does not qualify for extended year.He gets remediation thru his classroom because he's in a self-contained BD classroom. He goes with-an aide to regular classroom for science and social studies, but has not extra accomodations in those classrooms. I thought since he's 2 grade levels behind in reading, math , and writing he might get extended services, but school psychologist said no. His behaviors in the classroom are pretty good, but he's getting rude and sneaky. His Special Education teacher doesn't know how to motivate him to improve. She says we've used medication changes as an excuse all year, but we have been trying to find the right combination all year, so it has been a problem. Anyway just wondering what extended year services entails and how to get it.
