Supplemental Educational Services (SES) is Now Homework and Tutoring Services (HATS)

September 17, 2016

NCLB was reauthorized in December 2015 as the Every Child Succeeds Act (ESSA). Although Supplemental Educational Services (SES) are not required under ESSA, the Burlington Schools will be providing alternative supports [Homework and Tutoring Services- HATS] to those students who previously would have been eligible for SES. 
 
Eligible students in grades 2-12 may receive Homework Help as part of the school's afterschool program or supplemental tutoring in Reading and/or Math by an outside provider.
 
Applications will be sent home in one week, with the program to begin by the end of October.
Update on Incident Involving Rice Student at BHS Football Game
September 14, 2016
 
The District would like to thank all that have been working to address this incident in a timely manner. The Burlington Police Department acted quickly to identify the students involved, determine the origins of the online post and deploy a school resource officer to investigate the situation and calm tensions. The Chief of Police has noted that the sign was "deplorable" and "reeks of racism." The incident has not been deemed a hate crime.
 
Superintendent Yaw Obeng is in conversation with Rice Administration regarding an opportunity to engage in a Restorative Practices process, to bring together those involved in the incident in order to repair harm and restore relationships. We are pleased to move forward with Rice using this approach, working together towards a positive outcome for students and the larger community.
