Do essay scores have to be sent to colleges with the test score?

When I send a college my SAT score is the essay score automatically sent with it? I would rather only send the test score to colleges that don't require or recommend the essay as they are higher than the essay score of my test. Also is the essay super scored with the other 2 sections?
