What are Supplemental Educational Services?
Supplemental educational services are additional academic instruction designed to increase the academic achievement of your student. These services, which are in addition to instruction provided during the school day, may include academic assistance such as tutoring, remediation and other supplemental academic services that are consistent with the content and instruction used by Rowland Unified School District. SES must be high quality; research based and specifically designed to increase student academic achievement.
How do I learn more about getting SES for my child?
*Northam Provider Fair is now scheduled for Tuesday, November 4, 8:30 - 10 AM and 3 - 4:30 PM.
Enclosed are: the list of SES Providers for Rowland Unified School District and the Parent Request for Supplemental Educational Services form.
If you are interested in SES, please review the attached list and once you have selected 3 providers for tutoring your child, please fill out the Parent Request for Supplemental Educational Services form.

When will my child begin tutoring?
Upon receipt of the Parent Request for Supplemental Educational Services, the Office of Special Projects/ GATE will notify the provider of your choice.
The provider will contact you and a contract will need to be signed between you and the provider before tutoring begins.
Tutoring can begin any time after the contract has been signed with the provider and received by the District.
