The Avoyelles Parish School Board may offer parents of eligible children in schools identified in school improvement, opportunities for higher academic achievement through supplemental educational services (SES).


Supplemental educational services (SES) are additional academic instruction in reading, language arts/English, and/or mathematics that are designed to increase the academic achievement of students in schools in need of improvement.  These services may include academic assistance such as tutoring, remediation and other educational interventions that are consistent with the content and instruction used by the Avoyelles Parish School Board, and which are aligned with the State of Louisiana’s academic content standards.  In keeping with provisions of the No Child Left Behind Act of 2001(NCLB), all supplemental educational services shall be provided outside of the regular school day, before or after school, on weekends, or in the summer, and shall be of high quality, research-based, and specifically designed to increase student academic achievement.  


School Boards with schools rated as Academically Unacceptable may offer supplemental educational services as part of their school improvement efforts.  If utilized, the School Board shall notify parents about SES, and explain the process and the scope of services.  If SES is to be utilized in a school rated F, the SES provider shall be selected by the School Board from a state-approved list of providers published by the Louisiana Department of Education.  


Supplemental educational services shall be offered until the school in question is no longer identified for school improvement according to the requirements of NCLB.
