Supplemental Educational Services (SES)

   
The No Child Left Behind Act (NCLB) requires Title I schools that have not made adequate yearly progress (AYP) for three or more years to offer tutoring and other supplemental academic enrichment services that are in addition to instruction provided during the regular school day. These supplemental educational services are designed to increase the academic achievement of students in schools in the second year of improvement, in corrective action, or in restructuring. Supplemental educational services must be consistent with the content and instruction used by the school and be aligned with the Common Core and Vermont’s Framework of Standards and the Grade Expectations (GEs).

Supplemental Educational Services (SES)- Survey
SES are additional academic instruction designed to increase the academic achievement of students from low-income families attending Title I schools in their second year of school improvement, in corrective action, or in restructuring. The term ‘supplemental educational services’ means tutoring and other supplemental academic enrichment services that are in addition to instruction provided during the regular school day. The LEA must monitor the program effectiveness of all providers working in the school and ensure that all contractual obligations are being met. The “SES Non-Regulatory Guidance” revised on Jan. 14, 2009 explains in more detail the LEA’s responsibilities and requirements. View the “Guidance” document.
