Program Improvement Schools Information
September 1, 2015
The purpose of this letter is to inform you that your student’s school (Lindo Park and Lemon Crest ONLY) has been identified as a Program Improvement (PI) school under the federal No Child Left Behind (NCLB) Act of 2001.
The federal No Child Left Behind (NCLB) Act of 2001 assures all students have the opportunity to succeed in school and sets student performance targets that all public schools must meet. Schools that do not meet these targets over time are called Program Improvement (PI) schools. All schools in Program Improvement for more than one year must offer language arts and mathematics tutoring to their students outside of regular school hours.
On September 9, 2015 from 8:30-9:30a.m. and 3:00-4:00 p.m., The Lakeside School District is holding a Supplemental Educational Services (SES) Provider Fair at the District Office, 12335 Woodside Ave. The purpose of this fair is to provide parents with an opportunity to meet representatives from several tutoring agencies. These tutoring agencies also called SES Providers have been approved by the California State Board of Education and have contracted with Lakeside Union School District to provide free tutoring services. These providers will have information on tutoring services in reading (English language arts) and mathematics.
Students from low-income families at PI schools are eligible for SES. These services are classes or tutoring which occur outside the regular school day with educational providers approved by the State Board of Education. If the number of eligible students who apply for the SES program exceeds the financial resources available, the lowest achieving students from low-income families will receive SES first.
Parent Packets and more information will be available at the Provider Fair to help you understand the process of applying for and choosing an SES Provider for your child.
We look forward to seeing you there.
