NO CHILD LEFT BEHIND:
Supplemental Educational Services (SES)
What are Supplemental Education Services (SES)?
The No Child Left Behind Law of 2001 requires that all low income children in Schools classified as School Improvement II, and Corrective Action I and II must be offered Supplemental Educational Services (SES), such as tutoring, after-school or summer school. These services provide additional tutoring in reading and/or mathematics. A specified amount of funding is available for each low income child.
Who are “eligible” students?
Eligible students are those from low-income families who remain in schools that fail to meet state standards for at least three years. These students are given priority in school choice and supplemental education services.
