Supplemental Education Services (SES) is a federal Title I, Part A requirement for schools that failed to make Adequate Yearly Progress (AYP) for three or more years.
Supplemental education services provide extra help to low income students in eligible schools in the areas of reading, language arts or math. Service can be provided before or after school and on weekends.
The four Clover Park School District schools that qualify to receive SES for the 2015-16 school year are Lakeview and Tyee Park Elementary Schools, and Lochburn and Woodbrook Middle Schools. Parents of students attending these schools have already received a letter explaining their SES options, enrollment windows and how to RSVP to the vendor fair.
Eligible students who attend a qualifying school can receive free tutoring by providers on the state approved SES provider list, obtained from the Washington State Office of Superintendent of Public Instruction (OSPI). OSPI conducts an approval process for providers once a year and then publishes the list. Parents must select their SES provider from the OSPI list.
Tutoring takes place outside of the regular school day. Providers indicate if they provide online, after school or weekend times and location of services. Transportation will not be provided; parents will be responsible for transporting their child to/from location. SES provides a limited amount of tutoring for each student. OSPI sets a “maximum” amount of funds allowed for tutoring per SES qualified student.
The consideration period for SES service is Wednesday, Aug. 19 through Friday, Oct. 2 for parents interested in tutoring. Parents interested in learning more about tutoring services will be given the opportunity to meet with providers at our vendor fair.
Should funding allow, the second enrollment window is Monday, Nov. 9 through Friday, Nov. 27.
To qualify for SES services in the Clover Park School District, students must meet the following criteria:
If a student qualifies for SES services, the district will provide his or her parent with contact information to the first choice of SES providers listed on the form. The provider will contact the parents to set up the tutoring services and parents will work directly with the provider from that point forward. (The second choice provider is used if the first choice cannot provide services to the student).
