Title I – Choice Info/Form

Choice/ Supplemental Education Services (SES)-

Beginning with the 2002-03 school year, The No Child Left Behind Act of 2001 (NCLB) has required schools to show annual improvements in the academic achievement of the overall student population and of identified student subgroups within the general population, including economic background, race and ethnicity, limited English proficiency and special education.

Under NCLB, adequate yearly progress (AYP- visit http://www.doe.in.gov/ayp ) designations for Indiana school corporations and schools are determined by student achievement and participation rates on ISTEP+ (visit http://www.doe.in.gov/assessment ) in English/language arts and mathematics; student attendance rates (for elementary and middle schools); and high school graduation rates (for high schools). Schools must make AYP in all student groups in order to meet AYP. The goal of NCLB is for all students to achieve proficiency in English/language arts and mathematics by 2014.

No Child Left Behind (NCLB) includes formal consequences only for those public school corporations and schools that consistently do not make AYP (Annual Yearly Progress) and also participate in the federal Title I program. Title I schools have high percentages of students from low-income families and receive additional federal funding to help educate these students. After no making AYP for two consecutive years, Title I schools enter improvement status. CHOICE is one of the actions that public school corporations and schools must take after not making AYP for two consecutive years.

We can not offer School Choice because we are one school in one corporation grades PK – 12. However, we are offering SES (Supplemental Education Services) to those students who are eligible. This service offers free tutoring after school to assist students in making the academic gains necessary for passing ISTEP+.
