Revising the Continuous School Improvement Plans (CSIP)

The Continuous School Improvement Plan (CSIP) is now open for 2018. The new CSIP combines five different district/school improvement plans: (1) state-level questions for districts and schools, (2) federal-level plans, (3) schoolwide Title I plans, (4) special education improvement plans, (5) and CTE plans. Please submit specific feedback on what could be improved on the CSIP.  A focus group including representation from the Title I school COP, comprehensive schools, and Advanced Ed. Schools will be asked to participate and the focus group will advise on changes for next year’s CSIP.
