Parents' Guide to Supplemental Services.
Department of Education, Washington, DC.
The federal education act "No Child Left Behind" calls for accountability for school improvement. This brochure outlines how parents can determine the progress of their child's school, and where to go for additional information and/or services. The brochure answers the following questions: (1) How do I know if my child's school is in need of improvement? (2) How many schools are in need of improvement? (3) If my child is in a school that needs improvement, how can I begin to get help? (4) What kinds of programs are offered? (5) Can I get private help if necessary? (6) How do I choose a good program? (7) How is the provider paid? (8) Will my school or school district inform me about programs that are available? and (9) What if my child's school is listed as being in need of improvement, but my district hasn't contacted me with a full list of my options? As part of the "No Child Left Behind" law, when a disadvantaged child is attending a low performing school, federal funds can be used to provide supplemental services for that child. The brochure defines supplemental services, and notes eligibility criteria. (HTH)
