ILLINOIS REGISTER 3151
STATE BOARD OF EDUCATION
NOTICE OF PROPOSED AMENDMENTS
a) For each SES reporting period, ISBE shall evaluate each provider's performance
in each district the provider serves based upon students' achievement, students'
attendance, and parents' satisfaction. Separate evaluations shall be performed for
each subject tutored by a provider (i.e., reading and mathematics). Achievement
shall be measured by calculating an "effect size" in accordance with the
provisions of Appendix A to this Part based upon the assessment results attained
by students who have received at least 18 hours of instruction in the same
provider's program. Attendance shall be measured by the information submitted
to ISBE through its tracking system for students' enrollment and progress and by
means of a survey administered by ISBE to all providers. Parental satisfaction
shall be measured by a survey administered by ISBE to parents of students
receiving services. Providers and school districts shall cooperate with ISBE to
facilitate the administration of all surveys.
b) For each of the criteria outlined in subsection (a) of this Section, ISBE will
determine, based upon the evaluation rubric set forth in Appendix B to this Part,
whether the provider's performance in each subject tutored falls into the category
of "insufficient information", "below standards", "meets standards", or "above
standards". Based on these determinations, ISBE will assign each provider the
status of "good standing", "probationary status 1", or "probationary status 2", in
accordance with the decision tree displayed in Appendix C to this Part. Each
provider's status shall be determined on a Statewide basis for each subject
tutoredassigned separately with respect to each district served.
c) If a provider's compliance with State or federal requirements or interactions with
districts or parents indicate areas for improvement that are not serious enough to
warrant corrective action under subsection (h) of this Section, the provider's status
may also be assigned "with reservations". A provider assigned any status with
reservations that fails to address the identified areas for improvement during the
next SES reporting period shall be placed into corrective action in accordance
with subsection (h) of this Section.
d) A provider assigned the status of good standing shall not be required to take any
action in response, other than addressing any reservations during the next SES
e) A provider assigned to probationary status 1 shall submit a remedial action plan
describing the policies and practices the provider will immediately implement to
return its status to good standing, including:
