Attleboro's will be required to offer Supplemental Education Services for the upcoming school year as part of Title I of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act.
The Supplemental Education Services are offered to low-income students to any school that receives Title I funds and has an Adequate Yearly Progress status and is in year two or below, according to Attleboro's Director for Teaching and Learning Excellence Nancy Sprague.
The services include tutoring and remedial help in reading, language arts and mathematics provided before or after school, on weekends, and during the summer.
l could potentially offer the services as well, but its official Adequate Yearly Progress status has not been determined by the Department of Elementary and Secondary Education at this time. The ratings will be released in mid-September.
None of the middle schools will be required to offer No Child Left Behind School Choice for this school year as they have reached an AYP status of improvement.
However, Studley Elementary School may be required to offer NCLB School Choice depending on its AYP rating. Last year Studley did not meet all AYP expectations in Mathematics and if it does not meet the expectations again this year it will be in Improvement Year one in Mathematics.
If this is the case parents will receive letters notifying them of the status and Studley’s plans for improvement. Parents will also receive the NCLB School choice options, which allows them to send their child to another school within the district and have the district pay for transportation expenses until the school’s AYP rating improves.
“When the official determinations have been made, the district and each individual school will comply with all requirements, as we have done in the past,” Sprague said.
