Supplemental Educational Services (SES) provision offers providers an opportunity to give low-income children who may be struggling in school, extra academic help and individualized instruction.
An approved SES program must meet New York State educational standards in English language arts (including reading), and/or mathematics, at minimum, before they are permitted to provide services to SES-eligible students. Providers may have roots in community based organizations, charter schools, private schools, public schools, libraries, private companies, institutions of higher education, family literacy programs/Even Start programs, Boards of Cooperative Educational Services (BOCES), and faith-based organizations.
State-approved providers must offer services anytime outside of the regular school day. After school is the most common time for SES to be offered, but it could also take place before school, on weekends, or during the summer. SES can be offered in the school building, at a service center, community-based service site, in a student’s home or over the internet.
