No Child Left Behind (NCLB) is a sweeping, landmark educational reform that was passed into law in 2001. There are numerous components to the NCLB act. One that Ultimate Success Learning Program is involved with is Supplemental Educational Services (SES).
The supplemental services of NCLB provide low-income students in struggling schools with the opportunity to obtain tutoring services at no cost to parents. Importantly, NCLB grants parents the right to choose a supplemental services provider for their child. Parents may choose providers from a list approved by their state and made available by their school district.
Ultimate Success Learning Program would like to help parents better understand their choices and their rights regarding supplemental educational services (SES). Following are some of the most frequently asked questions we received from parents.
What are supplemental educational services?
Who is eligible to receive supplemental educational services?
How do parents know when a school is eligible?
How do parents enroll students in SES programs?
Are there accommodations when English is a second language?
How do parents choose an SES provider?
On Jan. 8, 2002, President Bush signed into law the No Child Left Behind Act of 2001 (NCLB). This new law represents his education reform plan and contains the most sweeping changes to the Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA) since it was enacted in 1965.
It changes the federal government's role in kindergarten-through-grade-12 education by asking America's schools to describe their success in terms of what each student accomplishes.
The act contains the President's four basic education reform principles: stronger accountability for results, increased flexibility and local control, expanded options for parents, and an emphasis on teaching methods that have been proven to work.
