• Supplementary Educational Services (SES):

    The term supplemental educational services refers to extra help provided to low income students and who rank as lowest-achieving in eligible schools in the areas of reading, language arts, and/or math.  Based on Renton School District’s achievement data and academic focus, we will provide support services in the area of  reading. This extra help can be provided before or after school or on weekends. Schools must provide SES when they are a Title I school that has failed to make Adequate Yearly Progress and are in Steps 2-5 of school improvement. This year the schools offering SES services are: Benson Hill, Bryn Mawr, Campbell Hill, Cascade, Highlands, Lakeridge, Renton Park, Sierra Heights, Talbot Hill and Dimmitt Middle School.

     

    Upcoming Changes for Supplemental Education Services (SES) and Public School Choice (PSC)

     

    The Office of Superintendent of Public Instruction (OSPI) developed a one-year transition plan for 2016-17 from NCLBs AYP to Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA). Learn more about this plan at: http://www.k12.wa.us/ESEA/ESSA/pubdocs/OSPI-AYP-SES-PSCTransitionPlan.pdf

     

    Renton School District will not be providing Supplemental Education Services (SES) or Public School Choice (PSC) transportation in the 2016-2017 school year. If your child is currently transferred to a school under PSC and you choose to remain in that school you will be responsible for transporting your child to and from school.  Letters were mailed out to families on May 13, 2016. If you need further information contact: (SES)  Monica Taylor 425-204-2483

    School Choice

    Schools must provide Public School Choice when they are a Title I school that has failed to make Adequate Yearly Progress and are in a step of school improvement – steps 1 through 5.

    Eligible Schools for the 2015-2016 school year:

    Benson Hill Elementary School, Bryn Mawr Elementary School, Campbell Hill Elementary School, Cascade Elementary School, Highlands Elementary School, Lakeridge Elementary School, Renton Park Elementary School, Sierra Heights Elementary School, Talbot Hill Elementary School, Tiffany Park Elementary School, Dimmitt Middle School*

    For the current school year the lowest achieving low-income students will be prioritized for school choice.

    The two schools that are choice schools for all of the above elementary schools are Honey Dew Elementary and Maplewood Heights Elementary. Please read about the assessment results of Renton Schools at http://www.k12.wa.us/ and click on School Report Cards.

    *We are unable to offer any choice options for Dimmitt Middle School as all of our middle schools are currently in improvement status. Surrounding school districts are also either in improvement status or are not accepting RSD transfers due to capacity issues.
