Local educational agencies will utilize providers from this list to offer eligible students grade appropriate supplemental programs in one or more of the following subjects: English-language arts (ELA), mathematics, and/or science. Parents/guardians, school staff, and the contracted provider collaborate to develop an individual Student Learning Plan (SLP) for each enrolled student.

Proposed programs must be:
• Of high quality
• Research-based
• Specifically designed to increase student academic achievement in ELA, mathematics, and/or science
• Aligned with state-approved content standards for the subject area in which services are provided

Eligible applicants must be able to document a two-year record of effectiveness in increasing the academic proficiency of students who have completed the applicant’s basic SES program. The improvement must be evidenced by an increase in student scores on pre-tests and post-tests for the subject(s) for which the application is submitted. The pre-tests and post-tests used to measure student progress must be valid, reliable, and aligned to the California content standards in ELA, mathematics, and/or science.
