The U.S. Department of Education released a report this month that shows how nine school districts in six states are managing the supplemental-educational-services provision of the No Child Left Behind Act.
The federal law requires that children from low-income families enrolled at Title I schools that have not made adequate yearly progress for three years receive services such as tutoring, academic remediation, and other assistance. The department’s report provides case studies for the 2003-04 school year, the second year the supplemental-services provision had been in effect.
