This report describes state efforts to carry out supplemental educational services (SES)requirements. It is the first in a series of CEP publications on the No Child Left Behind (NCLB) implementation that will report on the results of 2006 surveys of officials from 50 state educational agencies, a national sample of school districts, and case study research. Reported findings included: (1) Many states are unable to monitor "to a great extent" the quality and effectiveness of SES providers; (2) Almost all of the state education agencies surveyed reported using the criteria required by NCLB law and federal guidance to review and approve applications from potential supplemental service providers; (3) 20 states said they review new SES provider applications more often than once a year (the minimum required by the NCLB law), and 22 states reported updating their SES provider lists more than once a year; and (4) SES reapplication process varies widely by state. The report concludes that further research on SES program implementation and effectiveness could shed light on whether supplemental educational services are contributing to higher academic achievement for disadvantaged children. This report is part of a larger study examining state capacity in implementing NCLB that focuses on two main research questions: In what ways are states fulfilling their responsibilities under NCLB, and to what extent do state education agencies have the capacity to implement the requirements of NCLB? (Contains 6 footnotes, 5 figures and 3 tables.)
