Implementing Public School Choice and Supplemental Educational Services (SES)
These sections offer ideas for district implementation of public school choice and SES apart from parent notification and outreach activities and responsibilities. As SES involves a greater number of stakeholders and presents a wider variety of issues, we give more attention to implementing SES, including a separate section with ideas for building relationships among districts, schools, and SES providers.
There are many aspects of district implementation of public school choice and SES, and numerous strategies that districts have pursued to improve or enhance implementation with respect to a particular topic. As with the preceding sections, the following sections do not purport to cover these topics comprehensively or to provide definitive resolutions of issues that may exist. Rather, they are intended to provide districts with selected useful suggestions for implementation based, in part, on the practices of their peers. In pursuing any of the ideas discussed below, a district should be mindful of its particular characteristics and any state or local policies that may apply.
