Supplemental Educational Services

On December 10, 2015, President Barack Obama signed the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA), which reauthorized and updated the Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA).

In order for California to eliminate the requirement of Supplemental Educational Services (SES) and Choice for local educational agencies (LEAs) for the 2016 - 17 school year, an assurance letter had to be submitted to the U.S. Department of Education (ED) in addition to developing a Transition Plan. The assurances and Transition Plan ensures LEAs will provide students, who would generally be eligible for SES, with alternative supports in the 2016 - 17 school year.

LEAs can request an Excel spreadsheet which contains the organizations that were previously approve by the State Board of Education (SBE) as SES providers for the period of 2015 - 17.

Note: The approval status no longer applies with the passage of ESSA and the implentation of the Transition Plan.
