Supplemental Educational Services Non-Regulatory Guidance
US Department of Education
Supplemental educational services are additional academic instruction 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, provided that such approaches are consistent with the content and instruction used by the local educational agency (LEA) and are aligned with the State?s academic content standards. Supplemental educational services must be provided outside of the regular school day. Supplemental educational services must be high quality, research-based, and specifically designed to increase student academic achievement [Section 1116(e)(12)(C)]. This guidance updates and expands upon the Supplemental Educational Services Guidance that the Department released on August 22, 2003. It includes a number of new questions that address issues that were undeveloped or unaddressed in the 2003 guidance, and it responds to inquiries the Department received from State and local officials on issues subsequent to issuance of the 2003 guidance. Responses to other questions are revised to make them clearer or more responsive to issues based on experience gained from the implementation of the Title I supplemental educational services provisions.
