Supplemental Education Services Fair Set for Monday

Parents in schools under Program Improvement under the federal No Child Left Behind Act, as well as meeting other qualifications, can meet tutoring and other providers, called Supplemental Educational Services (SES), at a fair coming up on Monday.

The "Meet the Providers Fair" is an excellent opportunity for parents and students to meet the different tutoring organizations that are contracted to provide SES Free Tutoring to eligible students. Participating organizations will be there to answer your questions and provide you with information regarding their individual programs. If you plan to attend one or both of these fairs, please remember to bring your child's application that you received in your mail. SES Staff will be available to assist you and accept your applications in person.

The No Child Left Behind (NCLB) Act of 2001 was created to ensure that every child receives the academic attention he or she deserves, and that no child is left behind his or her peers. One of the most beneficial aspects of NCLB is the Supplemental Educational Services (SES) program, which provides free tutoring to children who require special assistance to succeed in school.
