Sign up for free tutoring 

Your child might be eligible to receive free tutoring. Registration ends Tuesday.

September 28, 2009

CPS is providing students with a way to get extra help in reading and math after the traditional school day ends.


Supplemental Educational Services (SES) provides additional academic instruction outside of the regular school day, and strives to increase the academic achievement of students at low-performing schools. 


Registration for the free tutoring service ends on Tuesday, Oct. 6.  (Year-round school registration ended Sept. 9.) Parents and students are encouraged to take advantage of this opportunity.


For students who sign up for the free tutoring services, there are several benefits. Students:


  • Demonstrate a significantly greater gain in both reading and math achievement
  • Have a higher attendance rate
  • Feel more confident and are shown to have an increase in student achievement

Student eligibility is based on income, as determined by the Free-Reduced Lunch form.


Students must also attend an  SES School, which is a school that has not made adequate yearly progress for two consecutive years or more.  Students receive this service at no cost to the parent/guardian or school-site.


Registration forms are available at your child’s school or you can download the form online in  English or  Spanish. There are more than 60 provider services available. Services are offered at the school, away from the school and online.


Supplemental Educational Services (SES) is a component of Title I of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA) as reauthorized by the No Child Left Behind Act (NCLB).
