We provide programs and services to enhance student achievement, targeting students who may be at risk of not achieving or dropping out of school. We also provide support and classes to engage parents in becoming partners in their child's education. Our goal is to support students, parents, and educators so students are able to reach their goals!
State Compensatory Education (SCE) is defined in law as programs and/or services designed to supplement the regular education program for students identified as at-risk of dropping out of school. The purpose of State Compensatory Education is to increase the academic achievement and reduce the drop out rate of these identified students.
Under the recent legislation of Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA), formerly No Child Left Behind (NCLB), Title I, Part A is supplemental funding to support high poverty schools in providing opportunities for children to acquire the knowledge and skills in the State content standards and to meet the challenging State performance standards developed for all children.
