key players in ses
Key Players In SES
  • US DoE issues guidance/regulations
  • SEAs determines and notifies LEAs with Schools in Needs Improvement status
  • SEAs approve SES providers, monitor, collect data, evaluate and remove Providers from State list

ses market
SES Market
  • Up to 15% of Title 1, or about $2 BB, annual opportunity (5% set-aside for transporation for Choice)
  • About $600-700 MM expended in 2006-2007; will rise dramatically
  • Enrollment levels up sharply (about 500,000 last school year) as more school are in Needs Improvement status
  • Over 3,000 approved providers-great variety
  • PPA ranges between $900-$2,200
potential ses opportunities
Potential SES Opportunities
  • At SEA level:
    • Assessment/accountability for AYP
    • Evaluation design to isolate SES effects
    • Develop student information/data collection/reporting system
potential ses opportunities6
Potential SES Opportunities
  • At LEA level:

potential ses opportunities7
Potential SES Opportunities

    • Staff development (Spec. Ed and ELL)
    • Data collection and reporting
    • Evaluation strategies
    • Sales/Marketing to districts and enrollment management to parents (e.g. call centers)
key issues in ses re structuring provisions
Key Issues in SES/Re-structuring Provisions
  • Higher standards for provider approval and program evaluation
  • Funding: 20% (or less) of Title I set-aside for SES or Xtended Learning
  • Re-allocation of unspent funds remain available for SES
  • Use of highly qualified teacher definition for tutors
  • School districts as SES providers
  • House draft eliminates role of for profits to manage schools and caps # of schools for restructuring
nclb where we are today
NCLB—Where we are Today
  • Senate currently drafting bill-April Mark-up?
  • Bipartisanship is required (different from House)
  • Cynicism continues on role of private sector
  • Push for flexibility in school district AYP accountability measures (like House)
    • Reduces # of schools and students for school improvement by making it easier to “make AYP”
    • Greatly reduces potential demand for SES, school restructuring services, etc.
nclb where we are today10
NCLB – Where we Are Today:
  • House Discussion Draft:
      • Eliminates role of for-profits from most of the services just described
      • Dilutes LEA accountability through multiple measures (not just reading and math assessments to make AYP)
      • Fewer schools and students identified for school improvement services
      • Introduces additional interventions
  • Draft criticized by all; under revision pending progress by Senate
presidential candidates views on nclb
Presidential Candidates Views on NCLB
  • Senator Clinton —more influenced by AFT/NEA
    • “Rewrite it”
    • Opposes choice provisions like vouchers
    • Called SES providers Halliburton-like
    • Emphasis on teacher quality/PD/mentors
    • Universal Pre K
  • Senator Obama:
    • “Improve it”
    • Assess higher order skills besides Reading and Math for AYP
    • Open mind on vouchers based on research findings
    • New grants for teacher corps, PD/merit pay
    • State grants for voluntary Pre K
  • Senator Mc Cain:
    • “Just tweak it”
    • Full support for competition by private sector (innovation)
    • Parent empowerment through expanded SES and Choice-programs
    • Merit pay for teachers; alternative certification; more PD
    • No federal role in Pre K—role of better parenting

So……?
  • Perfect storm of:
    • Short legislative calendar
    • Higher Education Act now going to Conference Committee
    • 3 candidates on Senate HELP Committee, and
    • Presidential election
  • NCLB already extended one year. Status quo through 2010 school year likely scenario
  • Still vital to get best language in draft bills-benchmark for future
  • If no new legislation, USDoE, through pilots/waiver authority or regulations, may:
    • Expand pilots for SES (flip and LEA as provider)
    • Restrict unused SES carry over funds
    • Focus on ELL, Spec. ED and Title I for high school
    • And ….?
a call to action
A Call to Action
  • Join a trade association to amplify the industry’s message- We are currently out-spent by teacher unions
  • View public schools as partners, not customers
  • Perform at highest standards: ethics and program quality
  • Focus on accountability provisions; not simply your special interest section in the Act
  • Engage Members of Congress with the message that you deliver results for students and schools.
