Supplemental Educational Services 2013-2014 School Year

Florida Department of Education

Bureau of Federal Educational Programs


Purpose

Purpose

  • The Florida Department of Education (department) is responsible for creating a directory of providers to offer Supplemental Educational Services (SES) in districts throughout the State.

  • Currently, all districts have opted to use Title I funds previously set-aside for SES to implement other school improvement activities.

  • In the event a district opts to implement SES later during the 2013-14 school year, the district will initiate contract proceedings with the state-approved provider(s) listed on the SES Approved Provider Directory.

Districts are no longer required to contract with ALL state-approved providers that wish to provide SES in their district. Districts have the flexibility to contract with as few as one (1) provider to serve their students.
