US Government, Office of Civil Rights
Ensure equal access to education and promote educational excellence through vigorous enforcement of civil rights. The OCR serves student populations facing discrimination and the advocates and institutions promoting systemic solutions to civil rights problems. Agency-initiated cases (compliance reviews) permit OCR to target resources on compliance problems that appear particularly acute. OCR also provides technical assistance to help institutions achieve voluntary compliance with the civil rights laws that OCR enforces.
SES Request Form (English) (Spanish)
Supplemental Educational Services (SES) is part of the No Child Left Behind Act (NCLB) of 2001. Through SES, parents can get free tutoring services for their children to provide extra help in academic subjects such as reading, language arts, and math. Tutoring is usually before or after school, on weekends or during summer months, and must be in line with state academic standards and connected to the school district’s instructional program. Eligible families choose a provider from a list developed by the state. School districts pay providers directly.
