School Choice and Supplemental
AYP Status Notification
Under No Child Left Behind (NCLB), Title I schools which do not meet their Adequate Yearly Progress targets for two consecutive years enter a system of AYP consequences. Districts and schools in such "In Need of Improvement" status are required to notify their parents of this status and what it entails. Notification letters were mailed on or after October 7, 2011. The letters are also posted below:
If your child attends a Title I school that has been designated by the state to be in need of improvement, you will receive a letter prior to the start of the school year informing you of your school choices in District 196. We will let parents know each year if their child is eligible to transfer to another school. If you choose to transfer your child to one of the two choices provided in the letter, District 196 will pay the transportation costs, giving priority to low-income, low-achieving students if there are not enough funds available to pay for all students. For more information about school choice call 651-423-7617.
Supplemental Educational Services
Supplemental Educational Services (SES), part of the No Child Left Behind (NCLB) legislation, provide free tutoring to students who attend a Title I school that fails to make progress for three years and are eligible for free or reduced-price school meals. These services offer students extra help in academic subjects such as reading, language arts and mathematics. SES services are provided outside the regular school day – before or after school, on weekends, or in the summer.
Free tutoring will be provided to students attending a school that has not made adequate yearly progress (AYP) as defined under NCLB for three or more consecutive years and is eligible for free or reduced-price meals. If there are not enough funds available for all eligible students, priority will be given based on academic need.
