This case concerns how many weeks in duration the extended school year services (ESY) should be provided to this severely impaired teenager with autism, mental retardation, and pervasive developmental delay. The School District proposes 20 school days of ESY services during the month of July, while the parents request 39 school days over the months of June, July and August. For the reasons described below, I find for the School District.


Should Student receive 20, or 39, school days of ESY services for summer 2008?
