Agenda Item #23


Title
Supplemental Educational Services Provider/District Contract

Discussion

The federal No Child Left Behind (NCLB) law requires districts to offer Supplemental Educational Services (SES) to eligible students at Title I schools that have not made Adequate Yearly Progress (AYP) for two or more consecutive years.  Districts must arrange for the provision of SES, in the form of after-school tutoring, by private companies which have been approved by the State to provide this service.  Under NCLB only students from low income families are eligible for SES.  Parents of eligible students are able to select the provider services and the district must enter into a contract with each company selected.  The contract includes the following: 1) a requirement that the provider, parent and district personnel develop an agreement including a statement of specific achievement goals for each student; 2) requirements for measuring and reporting student progress; 3) a time table for improving achievement; and 4) provisions for payment for services.  In the case of a student with a disability, the agreement must be consistent with the student's Individualized Education Plan (IEP).

The Title I schools required to offer SES during the 2011-12 school year will be determined by the 2011 FCAT results.  A final list of schools will be published once AYP results are released by the Florida Department of Education.

The total projected budget for SES is $2,139,150.  This amount is subject to change pending receipt of the final federal Title I Part A allocation.



Recommendation
Approve the updated FY2011-2012 Supplemental Educational Services (SES) Provider/ District Contract and authorize the Superintendent to sign contracts with individual SES providers on behalf of the Board.
