|Giving Parents Options: Strategies for Informing Parents and Implementing Public School Choice and Supplemental Educational Services Under No Child Left Behind
|U.S. Department of Education and Office of Innovation and Improvement|
|School districts are required to offer families supplemental educational services (SES) and school transfers if their district does not meet the performance goals of No Child Left Behind for several years in a row. There are very low participant rates for school districts in these areas, however; many families are unable to take advantage of the options. This handbook is intended to be a guide for districts to assist in implementing public school choice and SES more effectively. The information included is based on visits to 14 school districts conducted by the U.S. Department of Education's Office of Innovation and Improvement. This handbook can give districts guidance and direction on topics such as reaching and informing parents, facilitating applications and enrollment, providing transportation to and from selected schools and SES programs, and gaining support from the state education agency.
