Service Providers (Database)

Who is eligible to receive SES?

Eligible students are those who attend public schools that have been identified as PI schools in Years 2-5 and who are from a low-income family. LEAs have the responsibility of identifying eligible students for SES.  Because funding is limited, priority must be given to children from low-income families who have scored Far Below Basic or Below Basic in their English and/or Mathematics 2012-13 California Standards Test.

What is a state-approved SES provider?

A provider of SES may be any public or private (non-profit or for-profit) entity that meets the State’s criteria for approval.

How are providers selected for approval by the CDE?

Organizations submit an application to the CDE to become an SES provider, as defined in the No Child Left Behind (NCLB) Act of 2001, Title I, Part A, Section 1116(e). Those who meet the quality requirements specified under the California Code of Regulations, Title 5 for the SES program are recommended to and approved by the State Board of Education (SBE).

How can parents select a provider for their eligible child?

Mesa Union School District  will sponsor an SES Provider Fair in November.  This is an opportunity for parents to learn about each program and what each provider has to offer.  Parents must obtain a Parent Application for services either at the fair or from their school’s principal.  Interested parents must complete and return their completed application to their child’s principal.  Parents will be contacted by the selected provider after all requests have been processed.  Please keep in mind that if all parents of eligible students request services there may not be space for everyone.  Federal guidelines state that priority must be given to the lowest achieving students as determined by the most recent California Standards Test scores and Free and low socio-economic status.
