Abstract

The central purpose of this study was to determine the impact of Armstrong v. Kline (1978) and other critical court cases on the provision of extended school year (ESY) services to children with disabilities within local education agencies (LEAs). LEAs from the 5th and 10th Federal Judicial Circuits responded to the Extended School Year Survey providing information regarding local ESY programming. A prediction model was developed suggesting that LEA student enrollment and Federal Judicial Circuit membership accounted for the greatest amount of variance in the provision of ESY services at the local level. Additional information concerning eligibility criteria, disability categories most likely eligible for services, regression/recoupment, and percentage of children by disability category ruled eligible for ESY is presented.
