Supplemental Educational Services (SES)
Under the No Child Left Behind Act (NCLB), school districts are required, under some circumstances, to provide parents and their children with the option of using supplemental educational services. This option can be used when a student’s school is a Title I served building that has not demonstrated Adequate Yearly Progress (AYP) for three years. When this occurs, the school is considered to be in School Improvement Year 2 Status (SI Year 2).
Students eligible for Supplemental Educational Services (SES) are those students from low-income families who attend a Title I served school in School Improvement Year 2 or higher, including corrective action, or restructuring. Priority is given to the lowest achieving eligible students.
Parents will have the opportunity to work with teachers and administrators in the school to identify their children’s needs and how these needs can be met with supplemental outside help in the areas of reading, language arts and math. SES can take place before or after school and/or on weekends.
To assist parents in selecting an SES provider that best meets their child’s needs, and to assure that these services are aligned with Ohio’s Academic Content Standards, the Ohio Department of Education has developed a list of state-approved providers by school district. School districts must notify parents of the list’s availability.
