Supplemental Educational Services

NOTE: The NYS Education Department (NYSED) is currently no longer accepting new SES applications. The recent USDE approved NYSED ESEA Waiver allowed districts to continue using the SES option or to opt out of it. There are currently too many NYSED approved SES providers for the few schools with eligible students, that are continuing the SES option. NYSED does not anticipate accepting new applications until the current ESEA legislation is re-authorized.

For those NYSED approved SES Providers that have re-submitted their SES applications to NYSED in order to show alignment with the Common Core Learning Standards (CCLS) the expected notification of their re-application status should be between June and August 2014. We apologize for the delay in notification.

Supplemental educational services (SES) two children on computerare defined in the federal No Child Left Behind Act (NCLB). Under NCLB, local school districts are responsible for notifying parents of students in some schools receiving Title I funds that their children are eligible for supplemental educational services (including tutoring) from a provider on the Department ’s list of approved providers.

According to the Differentiated Accountability Pilot, all Title I schools identified for improvement (Improvement, Corrective Action or Restructuring phase) must offer students supplemental educational services. Under NCLB regulations schools must determine their eligibility to offer services and report it to the Education Department.
