Supplemental Education Services

Equitable Distribution of Teachers 2014-2015

The No Child Left Behind Act of 2001 (NCLB), officially know as The Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA), was signed into law on January 8, 2002, by President Bush. The act’s four basic education reform principles are: stronger accountability results, increased flexibility and local control, expanded options for parents, and an emphasis on teaching methods that have been proven to work. (See for more information.) Within the category of “expanded options for parents,” the Supplemental Educational Services (SES) program is mandated. Low-income parents with children in a Title I school that is in School Improvement II, Corrective Action, or Restructuring who do not opt for transfer to a higher-performing school will be able to request supplemental educational services. The school district is responsible for funding these services, which must be provided outside the normal school day, and in doing so, may choose to use a portion of its Title I, Part A funds. Title I, Part A, is intended to help ensure that all children have the opportunity to obtain a high-quality education and reach proficiency on challenging state academic standards and assessments. Supplemental Educational Services may take place after school, on weekends, or during the summer, and will include tutoring and remedial services.  To find out more about this program, access the following website:
