Supplemental Educational Services
Victor Valley Union High School District Report on Participation in Public School Choice and Supplemental Educational Services (SES) As required by Title I Regulations, Section 200.39(c), from 34 Code of Federal Regulations Part 200 (U.S. Department of Education, October 2008)
Supplemental Educational Services (Tutoring)
The Supplemental Educational Services (SES) program offers families a chance to get their children extra academic help and the individual instruction they need. Generally, your child is eligible for SES if he/she qualifies for free or reduced-price lunch, and attend a Title I school that has not made adequate yearly progress (a Program Improvement school).
The term "supplemental educational services" refers to free extra academic help, such as 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.
Each State educational agency (SEA) is required to identify organizations that qualify to provide these services. Districts must make available to parents a list of State-approved supplemental educational services providers in the area and must let parents choose the provider that will best meet the educational needs of the child.
Providers are independent contractors paid by VVUHSD on your behalf up to a certain dollar amount. They are not school employees, but they have been screened by the State of California. Parents have the right to select which provider they want to use, and school staff can not suggest, recommend, or assist parents in this choice.
