SCE – Supplemental for At-Risk
Compensatory education allotments must
be used to fund supplemental programs
and services designed to eliminate any
disparity in performance on state
assessment instruments or disparity in
rates of high school completion between
students at-risk of dropping out of school,
and all other students. [Education Code
42.152 (c), (c-1), (c-2)]
• Any program activity, program personnel, or
program materials required by federal law,
state law, or State Board of Education rule
may not be funded with SCE funds.
• SCE funds must be used to provide support
programs and/or services that supplement
(are in addition to) the regular education
program so that students at risk of dropping
out of school can succeed in school.
Let’s say this math teacher has 28
students in each of her math classes . . .
How many of the students in her classes are
required to receive math instruction this year?
How many of the students in her class are required
to receive math instruction this year?
All of the students should receive math . . .
Which means we cannot charge the teacher to
SCE (even if one of her classes contains more
struggling students).
For those students who failed the
STAAR math assessment, they could
benefit from an extra math class, or
from an extra math teacher pushing in
to the regular math classroom to
support the at-risk students
SCE – Design & Implementation
• We must use student performance data
from state basic skills assessment
instruments and achievement tests to
design and implement appropriate
compensatory, intensive, or accelerated
instructional services that enable students
to perform at grade level at the conclusion
of the next regular school term.
[Education Code 29.08(a)]
SCE Priority – Reserve SCE Funding
to Serve those who Fail EOC
• We must provide accelerated instruction
to each enrolled student who has failed
an EOC assessment (prior to the next
administration) or who is at risk of
dropping out of school. [Education Code
29.081 (b), (b-1), (b-2), (b-3), 39.025 (b-1)]
SCE – Intensive, Accelerated Instruct.
• Must offer an intensive program of
instruction to a student who does not
perform satisfactorily on a state
assessment instrument or is not likely to
receive a high school diploma before the
5th school year following the student’s
enrollment in 9th grade. [Texas Education
Code 28.0213]
SCE - Evaluation
Must evaluate and document the
effectiveness of the accelerated
instruction program for at-risk
students vs all other students on
state assessments and graduation
rates. [Educ. Code 29.081 (c)]
SCE - Documentation
• To determine if our SCE services are
effective, we must track (document &
–Which students are being served
–How are they served
–How often they are served
–Have their scores improved, did
they pass the state assessment

program design? (compare your expenditures
