FUSD Title I Regulations - Parent Notifications
Supplemental Educational Services - Free Tutoring
One of the primary components of the No Child Left Behind Act (NCLB), signed January 8, 2002, requires that grade K-12 eligible students in specific schools be provided supplemental academic services such as tutoring. The NCLB legislation requires that school districts reserve 20% of their total Title One allocation to pay for tutoring services for eligible students. Therefore, this services is free for families that qualify.
Initial eligibility is determined by the school the student attends. If the school is in the second year or more of Program Improvement, then students who attend that school and who participate in the free/reduced meal program are eligible. Supplemental Educational Services are academic assistance or tutoring-type services offered before or after school, on weekends by state approved providers.

Public School Choice
The federal No Child Left Behind Act of 2001(NCLB) requires state implementation of an
accountability system that annually reviews academic progress in all Title I schools and requires schools that do not make adequate yearly progress (yearly growth target), to be identified. A Title I school is identified as Program Improvement (PI) if it fails to make adequate yearly progress (AYP) for two consecutive years.
The federal No Child Left Behind Act of 2001 mandates providing the “Public School Choice” option to students attending a Program Improvement (PI) school [Section 1116(b)(1)(E). Identified students who attend a Program Improvement (PI) school are provided the option to transfer to a Non-Program Improvement school. See parent notification letters about public school choice with list of school options to request transfer from a Program Improvement (PI) school to a non-PI school.
