It’s business as usual at Iowa Department of Education despite the attempts to reauthorize and rewrite NCLB and its parent law ESEA.
The Iowa application for SES providers for the 2015-2016 school year will be posted by January 31, 2015 on the Iowa DOE website and may be found by following the link below.
Iowa also provide a recorded webinar with information for SES providers as well as other useful information on their website.
Many SES RFA’s will ask you about accountability and reporting and your plans for managing your SES data. Before completing any SES application take a look at Oases Online. A purpose built system for managing government and agency contracted tutoring alongside your private pay students. With billing, payroll and the recently added tasks and custom fields Oases is a one stop shop for any tutoring provider and a respected name in SES data management.
Oases includes automatic learning plans created from the Achieve tests. You will need to name your tests on your application and prove validity and effectiveness. Oases can help their customers with these questions regarding testing with Achieve and creating learning plans.
Request a demonstration of Oases before you apply to be an SES provider.
