Supplemental Educational Services (SES) are additional, free, academic instruction designed to increase the academic achievement of students in schools identified for improvement, corrective action or restructuring under the No Child Left Behind Act (NCLB). Students from low-income families attending Title I schools in their second year of school improvement (i.e., have not made Adequate Yearly Progress (AYP) for three or more years), in corrective action, or in restructuring status are eligible to receive SES.
SES can consist of tutoring or remedial help that is provided to students in subjects such as reading, language arts, and math. This extra help can be provided before or after school, on weekends, or in the summer by providers that have been approved by the New Hampshire Department of Education (NHDOE). Providers of SES may include nonprofit entities, for-profit entities, local educational agencies, public schools, public charter schools, private schools, public or private institutions of higher education, and faith-based organizations.
Districts with eligible schools, must provide a list of approved providers (posted by the NHDOE) to parents/guardians of eligible students and let parents choose the provider that will best meet the educational needs of their child.
The following are resources for families, schools, districts and providers:
