What are Supplemental Educational Services (SES)?

Low-income families are eligible to receive Supplemental Education Services if the child is from a low income family attending a Title I school that has been designated by the state to be in need of improvement for more than one year.  All North Monterey County Unified School District Elementary Schools fit these criteria.  The term "supplemental educational services" refers to free extra academic help, such as tutoring or remedial help, that is provided to students in subjects such as reading, language arts, and math.  This extra help is provided after school.  If funding is insufficient to serve all applicants, the District will establish a priority list based on the lowest achieving eligible children.

The California Department of Education identifies organizations that qualify to provide these services.  Providers of supplemental educational services may include nonprofit entities, for-profit entities, local educational agencies, public schools, public charter schools, private schools, public or private institutions of higher education, and faith-based organizations.  Entities that would like to be included on the list of eligible providers must contact CDE and meet the criteria established by the state to be considered for the list of eligible providers.
