Supplemental Educational Services
What are Supplemental Educational Services?
Supplemental Educational Services are extra academic services, such as tutoring, offered outside of regular school hours free of cost to eligible students. Low-income students who are attending Title I schools that have not made Adequate Yearly Progress (AYP) in the same subject for two or more years are eligible. Funding for SES tutoring is paid from monies set aside from the district's full allotment of funds received through NCLB. Services are designed to increase the academic achievement of low-income students, particularly in the areas of reading, language arts and mathematics. Service providers can be public, private, non-profit or for profit organizations approved by the N.C. State Board of Education. The services must be of high-quality, research-based and consistent with the instructional program of the school district and with the N.C. Standard Course of Study.
