Let me give you some background about the business that I am in. Overview of the Supplemental Educational
Services (SES) provision of the No Child Left Behind Act.
What are supplemental educational services? Generally,
supplemental educational services (SES) are free tutoring
services that must be offered to low-income children who attend a Title I
school that fails to make progress for three years (in its second year of
“school improvement status”).Low-income students are generally those who are
eligible for free or reduced-price lunch. These services offer students extra
help in academic subjects such as reading, language arts, and mathematics. SES
services are provided outside the regular school day—before or after school, on
weekends, or in the summer.
The problem that I have is getting the parents to sign up and choose the
company that I work with. The way it works is: The school district sends a
letter to the parents of children that qualify for services, in that letter is
a list of all the different companies that can offer services.
The only information that the school district give us is the name of the
schools that qualify and that is it.
