The New Jersey Department of Education has begun soliciting educational services providers to apply to the department to become a provider of supplemental education services.
The federal No Child Left Behind (NCLB) Act of 2001 contains new requirements offering supplemental educational services to Title I students in schools in need of improvement.
Supplemental educational services are defined as tutoring and/or other supplemental academic enrichment activities that are provided beyond the regular school day. Services are to be:
- High quality;
- Research-based; and
- Designed to improve the academic achievement of the participating students.
An eligible student is a child attending a school in need of improvement from a low-income family that is not meeting the New Jersey Department of Education content standards in language arts and mathematics.
Supplemental Services are scheduled to be provided in the 2003-04 school year.
Attached are the guidelines and application that educational services providers need to complete in order to apply to become an approved supplemental service provider in the State of New Jersey.
Applications are due on November 22, 2002.
If potential supplemental service providers have questions about the application and approval process, please contact:
