Students who attend school in Jackson County may qualify for extra, after-school academic help through Supplemental Educational Services, known as SES. SES providers employ trained instructors to provide this free tutoring in the areas of reading and math. This service is available to students who are also eligible for free or reduced-price lunch at the following Title l schools:
Grand Ridge School
SES is available to eligible students at these selected Title l schools because the state has identified these particular schools as "in need of improvement" for two or more years. Parents may choose the tutoring provider that best meets their child’s needs.
For more information and the opportunity to meet all the approved Jackson County providers and sign up for SES, plan to attend the countywide Provider Fair on August 21, 2008, from 5:00 – 7:00 p.m., CST at the old Marianna High School cafeteria located at 2979 Daniels Street in Marianna. For parents unable to attend the district Provider Fair, Graceville Elementary School will also host an enrollment night on Tuesday, August 19, 2008, from 5:00 – 7:00 p.m. Also, each of the eligible schools has a facilitator who can assist with enrollment.
For additional questions contact Donna Martin or Jackie Fay Kelly at the district office, 482-1200.
