Abstract

Low-income students in a Title I school are eligible to receive free, after-school tutoring if their school has failed to make adequate yearly progress for three consecutive years. Districts with low-income schools declared in need of improvement must set aside 20% of their Title I monies to pay for student transfers and supplemental educational services (SES). As NCLB enters its sixth year of implementation, the SES provision still has a long way to go to fulfill its original purpose. While both the number of students utilizing services and the number of providers offering services have grown substantially, SES are still hindered by low enrollment rates, a lack of confidence in efficacy of providers, and a slender research base to inform policy. Effectively reaching and serving students in failing schools remains a challenge.
