Supplemental Instruction



The Governing Board shall provide supplemental instructional programs to motivate and support students to overcome academic deficiencies, attain grade-level academic standards or enhance critical skills.

Supplemental instructional programs for students enrolled in the district shall be offered outside the regular school day. Such programs may be offered during the summer, before school, after school, on Saturday and/or during intersessions. (Education Code 37252, 37252.2, 37252.8, 37253). Under the provisions of National Defense Authorization Act, military dependent students in grades 9-12 living within the district boundaries and attending an approved home school program may enroll in JROTC.

The Board shall offer direct, systematic and intensive supplemental instruction for students in grades 2-9 who have been retained or recommended for retention pursuant to Education Code 48070.5. (Education Code 37252.2)

The Board shall offer direct, systematic and intensive supplemental instruction for students in grades 7-12 who do not demonstrate "sufficient progress" toward passing the state exit examination required for high school graduation. (Education Code 37252, 60851)

For purposes of determining students' eligibility for supplemental instruction, "sufficient progress" toward passing the high school exit examination shall be determined by students' grades and other indicators of academic achievement designated by the Board.

Whenever a school receiving federal Title I funds fails to make adequate yearly progress, as defined by the State Board of Education, for three (3) or more consecutive school years, supplemental educational services shall be provided outside the regular school day to eligible students from low-income families. Services shall be selected by the parent/guardian from an approved list of service providers and shall specifically be designed to increase eligible students' achievement on state academic assessments and to assist them in attaining state academic standards. (20 USC 6316)

As funding, facilities, and staffing permit, supplemental instruction may be offered to:

  1. students in grades 2-6 who have been identified as being at risk of retention pursuant to Education Code 48070.5; (Education Code 37252.8)

  2. students in grades 2-6 who have been identified as having a deficiency in mathematics, reading or written expression based on the results of the Standardized Testing and Reporting Program; (Education Code 37252.8)

  3. students in grades K-4 who need or desire intensive reading opportunities that meet the standards specified in Education Code 44259 and 53027 for a research-based comprehensive reading program. (Education Code 53025-53031)
