Schools or districts that are in Program Improvement for two or more years must offer Supplemental Educational Services. Supplemental Educational Services are free tutoring or other additional academic support activities beyond the regular school day. Services must be high quality, based on research that they are effective, and designed to improve the students' academic achievement. Students are eligible for services if they are in a Title I school (schools receiving money from the federal government to help better serve low-income students) and are both low-income and not performing at grade-level in reading and math.
School districts or the school must notify parents in a timely manner if their school is in Program Improvement, if Supplemental Educational Services are available for their child and how parents can access those services.
