What are supplemental educational services?
Generally, supplemental educational services (SES) are free tutoring services that must be offered to low-income children who attend a Title I school that fails to make progress for three years (in its second year of “school improvement status”).  Low-income students are generally those who are eligible for free or reduced-price lunch.
These services offer students extra help in academic subjects such as reading, language arts, and mathematics. SES services are provided outside the regular school day—before or after school, on weekends, or in the summer.   

Who can get SES ?

Low income students, generally those who receive free or reduced-price lunch, who attend Title I schools that have not made adequate yearly progress for at least three years are eligible for free tutoring services.
As part of the No Child Left Behind Act , states are required to set definitions of adequate yearly progress ( AYP ), the minimum performance that districts and schools must reach every year on state achievement tests. Title I schools that don’t make AYP for at least three years must offer SES to students. Schools must continue to offer SES to their students until the school shows adequate yearly progress for two years in a row.

Is every student guaranteed to receive supplemental services?

No, if the demand for SES in the school district exceeds available funds, districts may give priority to the lowest achieving eligible students.

Can the provider meet the learning needs of students with disabilities?
Yes.  If your child has disabilities, we can accommodate those disabilities.  All services will be consistent with your child's individualized educational program (IEP) or specialized services under Section 504.  Supplemental services are in addition to, not a substitute for, the instruction and services required under IDEA and Section 504.

Does the provider measure student needs?
Yes, Tutors will use curriculum based measures to monitor the progress of each student as well as data compiled from school teachers and staff.

How will the provider keep me informed of my child’s progress?
Tutors will meet with parents regularly to discuss the progress of the student.  Our tutors will send home progress reports at the end of each session indicating the activities and progress made during the session.  Parents may contact the tutor or company at any time to discuss services.

What if my child is eligible for SES, but is already enrolled in an afterschool program?
You can still participate in SES.  You do not have to choose your afterschool program as a SES provider. You may choose other state approved companies and still participate in the afterschool program.
