Sanctions:

PSC - Public School Choice

A school in Title I School Improvement school must provide all students enrolled the option to transfer to

    another public school in the Local Education Agency that has not been identified for improvement (unless

    that option is prohibited by state law).

SES Supplemental Educational Services

Supplemental Educational Services are tutoring services provided outside the regular school day to eligible

    children. The Local Education Agency shall arrange for the provision of supplemental educational services

    to eligible children in the Title I School Improvement school from a provider with a demonstrated record of

    effectiveness, that is selected by the parents and approved for that purpose by the State Education Agency.

    The term eligible children refers to children receiving free and reduced lunch.

CA Corrective Action

A Local Education Agency with a Title I school designated as being in corrective action shall take at least

    one of the following actions:

? Replace the staff who are relevant to the failure to make adequate yearly progress;

    ? Institute and fully implement a new curriculum;

    ? Significantly decrease management authority at the school level;

    ? Appoint an outside expert to advise the school on its progress toward making adequate yearly progress

    based on its plan;

    ? Extend the school year or school day for the school; or

    ? Restructure the internal organizational structure of the school.

PR Plan for Restructuring

A Local Education Agency with a Title I school designated for planning for restructuring shall plan for one

    year to implement one of the following alternative governance arrangements consistent with state law:

? Reopening the school as a public charter school;

    ? Replacing all or most of the school staff (which may include the principal) who are relevant to the failure

    to make adequate yearly progress;

    ? Entering into a contract with an entity, such as a private management company, with a demonstrated

    record of effectiveness, to operate the school;

    ? Turning the operation of the school over to the state, if permitted under state law and agreed to by the

    state; or

    ? Any other major restructuring of the school’s governance arrangement that makes fundamental reforms,

    such as significant changes in the school’s staffing and governance, to improve student academic

    achievement in the school and that has substantial promise of enabling the school to make adequate

    yearly progress as defined in the state plan under section 1111(b)(2).

    R - Restructuring

A Local Education Agency with a Title I school designated for restructuring shall implement one of the

    following alternative governance arrangements consistent with state law:

? Reopening the school as a public charter school;

    ? Replacing all or most of the school staff (which may include the principal) who are relevant to the failure

    to make adequate yearly progress;

    ? Entering into a contract with an entity, such as a private management company, with a demonstrated

    record of effectiveness, to operate the school;

    ? Turning the operation of the school over to the state, if permitted under state law and agreed to by the

    state; or

    ? Any other major restructuring of the school’s governance arrangement that makes fundamental reforms,

    such as significant changes in the school’s staffing and governance, to improve student academic

    achievement in the school and that has substantial promise of enabling the school to make adequate

    yearly progress as defined in the state plan under section 1111(b)(2).

    Year 7 School Improvement (public school choice and supplemental

     educational services still required)

    If a school makes Adequate Yearly Progress at any point while it is in Title I School Improvement, it does not move to the next level of sanctions. For example, if a school met Adequate Yearly Progress at the end of

    year 3, it would not have to implement supplemental education services for at least one year. If at the end of year four the school did not meet Adequate Yearly Progress, it would then be required to provide

    supplemental educational services the next school year.

Title I School Improvement

    Title I schools that, for two consecutive years, don’t make Adequate Yearly Progress are identified for Title I School Improvement. Under No Child Left Behind, Title I School Improvement schools must meet Adequate

    Yearly Progress for two consecutive years to exit Title I School Improvement. Once a school exits Title I

    School Improvement, it is no longer subject to any sanctions.
