Artist Residency

Music learning supports all learning.  It also strongly correlates with increased student engagement. For  students at the John Powers School, Charles Ott Academy, Rochester Learning Academy and HOPE School, engagement was at a maximum during a recent six-day SLC artist residency with multi-instrumental musician, performer and teaching artist Randy Armstrong.

Supplemental Education Services

Supplemental Educational Services (SES) are additional, free, academic instruction designed to increase the academic achievement of students in schools identified for improvement, corrective action or restructuring under the No Child Left Behind Act (NCLB). Students from low-income families attending Title I schools in their second year of school improvement (i.e., have not made Adequate Yearly Progress (AYP) for three or more years), in corrective action, or in restructuring status are eligible to receive SES.

Strafford Learning Center is approved by the Department of Education to provide Supplemental Education Services to children from our member school districts. Well-trained, certified teachers from within member districts and Strafford Learning Center provide individualized supplemental instruction after school and in the summer. Teachers are trained in research-based models of reading and mathematics instruction.

All tutoring sessions occur at the student’s school. Teachers travel to the student’s community. Strafford Learning Center is not responsible for student transportation.

We believe that:

  • Supplemental tutoring should be closely aligned with the school curriculum and classroom instruction.
  • Communication between stakeholders is essential for student success.
  • Frequent and relevant assessment is a valuable tool to drive instruction.

A core component of Strafford Learning Center’s SES Program is the use of Curriculum Based Measurement as a form of assessment to identify gaps in knowledge and create instructional goals. These goals are monitored weekly with progress being reported to the parent and classroom teachers.

For more information about SES tutoring please contact Jennifer Readel at Strafford Learning Center.
