Federal guidelines from the No Child Left Behind Act of 2001 (NCLB) requires that Title I schools identified as not making Adequate Yearly Progress (AYP) for two or more years offer students the choice of transferring to another public school that is not in school improvement.
The following school in the South Pike School District is in school improvement Year 1:
South Pike High School
No school choice is available since there is only one high school in the district. The neighboring districts have declined to participate in a cooperative agreement to share in school choice.
SES (Supplemental Educational Services) is optional for schools in Year 1. Therefore, no SES is provided. The high school has decided to offer tutoring after school, extended year and/or Saturday to assist students with state assessments.
The district will provide public school choice and supplemental education services as outlined in the guidelines if applicable:
- Written notice to parents in a timely manner of school choice options if available and reason (s) for school improvement
- Offer parents opportunities to be involved in the academic challenges leading to school improvement status
- Set aside the required percentage of funds to provide transportation and SES to eligible students
- Offer SES (Supplemental Educational Services) to students from low-income families
- Offer extending learning opportunities when SES not offered
- Provide opportunities for parents to attend SES vendor fairs; enter into agreement with SES provider selected by parents
- Monitor the SES program
