ESEA WAIVER: STATUS OF AFTER-SCHOOL TUTORING (TOPPS AND SYLVAN)
 
In Spring 2012, the Ohio Dept. of Education received a waiver from the federal government. This waiver provides districts with flexibility regarding specific requirements of the No Child Left Behind Act in exchange for rigorous state developed plans to improve student outcomes. As a result, the waiver removed the requirement that schools offer Supplemental Educational Services (tutoring) and Public School Choice (PSC). Therefore, this school year Hillsboro Elementary will not be providing after school tutoring as was done over the last few years through programs offered by TOPPS and Sylan. Instead, those funds will be used for reading interventions/services to help struggling K-3 students.   In particular, we will be providing supplemental reading during the school day in small group instruction (assisted by Title I teachers and additional reading tutors). We will also be doing more frequent monitoring of student progress, implementing rigorous Common Core standards and assessments, and using reading strategies that will address students’ specific reading deficiencies. If you have any questions about the waiver, please feel free to contact your principal or Michelle Ross in the central office (393-3475).         
 
 
On January 8, 2002, President Bush signed into law the No Child Left Behind (NCLB) Act.  This law provides parents and families new options if your child’s school has been identified in need of school improvement.  School improvement means that a school did not meet the required Adequate Yearly Progress (AYP) for two years in a row.  AYP is determined by how students in the school score on the Ohio Achievement tests in reading and math.  The following charts indicate the improvement statuses for the the Hillsboro City School District and the schools in the district that did not meet AYP based on data since the 2007-08 school year.

To view the schools

Additionally, the NCLB Act states that if a child attends a Title I school that is in Year 2 or more of school improvement status, the child may be eligible to receive Supplemental Educational Services (SES)/tutoring in reading or math. To be eligible for these services, the child must meet the income limits under the law (i.e. your child must be eligible for free/reduced breakfast/lunch). These services are offered by state approved providers and occur outside of the regular school day. The following chart lists the Ohio Department of Education (ODE) approved SES providers for Hillsboro schools.

CHART D

The ODE approved SES providers for Hillsboro City Schools is available at: http:dnet01.ode.state.oh.us/ses/ProviderLookup.aspx.

During the last school year (2010-11), the SES services were provided at Hillsboro Elementary School.

’’ state report card or to compare the schools to others in Ohio, please visit the state website at http://ilrc.ode.state.oh.us. Under the NCLB Act, parents have the choice of moving their child to another school if the child attends a school that receives Title I federal funds and is in school improvement status. This option is called Public School Choice (PSC). –– ODE Approved SES Providers for Hillsboro schools
