Gooding Joint School District No. 231
Contracted Student Services
The Board of Trustees hereby delegates to the building principals the authority to enter into agreements for student services but requires District approval of such contracts. The reason for District approval is that District Administration has no control over excess spending if contracts are signed at the building level without the District’s approval.
It is the intent of the District to provide services required by student’s Individualized Educational Programs (IEPs) and develop resources within the District to eliminate the need for outside sources for special education services.
Supplemental Education Services
Adequate Yearly Progress (AYP) is the measure of the necessary annual improvement made by a school as evaluated by the State academic assessment. For students attending schools that have not made AYP for three consecutive years, eligible students will be provided supplemental services to increase their academic achievement. The supplemental services may include tutoring, remediation, and other educational interventions and are provided outside of the regular school day. If sufficient funds are not available to serve all eligible children, the District will give priority to the lowest achieving eligible students.
