No Child Left Behind Act: Education Actions Needed to Improve Local Implementation and State Evaluation of Supplemental Educational Services - NCLB requires districts with schools receiving Title I funds that have not met state performance goals for three consecutive years to offer their low-income students supplemental educational services (SES), such as tutoring.
