Abstract: The No Child Left Behind Act (NCLB) requires districts with Title I schools that fall short of state standards for three years or more to offer supplemental educational services (SES) to their students from low-income families who attend these schools. SES are tutoring or other academic support services offered outside the regular school day by state-approved providers free of charge to eligible students. Parents can choose the specific SES provider from among a list approved to serve their area. The U.S. Department of Education has commissioned Mathematica Policy Research to evaluate the impact of SES on student achievement in up to nine school districts across the country. Findings of the study will not only inform national policy discussions about SES, but will also provide direct feedback to participating districts about the effectiveness of the SES offered to their students.
