Agenda Item #49
Supplemental Education Services Provider/District Contract
The federal No Child Left Behind (NCLB) law requires districts to offer Supplemental Education 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 who 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 of services, and the district must enter into a contract with each company selected. The contract allows for the following: 1) the provider, parent and school personnel to develop an agreement that includes a statement of specific achievement goals for each student, 2) a description of how student progress will be measured and reported to parents and teachers, 3) a timetable for improving achievement, and 4) provisions for payment for the services. In the case of a student with a disability, the agreement must be consistent with the student's Individualized Education Plan (IEP).
The following elementary schools are required to offer SES during the 2009-10 school year: Columbia, Golfview, South Lake, Sabal, Discovery, Fairglen, Harbor City, Mims, Palm Bay, Imagine Charter, Cambridge, Coquina, Dr. W. J. Creel, Gardendale, Jupiter, Turner, University Park, Riverview, Riviera, and Endeavour. Schools may be added to or deleted from this list based on 2009 AYP results.
The total projected budget for SES is $1,922,301. This amount is subject to change pending receipt of the final federal Title I Part A allocation.
Approve the updated FY2009-2010 Supplemental Education Services Provider/District Contract and authorize the Superintendent to sign contracts with individual SES providers on behalf of the Board.
