Comprehensive Support and Improvement/Educational Recovery

Comprehensive Support and Improvement/Educational Recovery

Published: 9/9/2019 11:04 AM

As required by the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) and beginning with the 2018-19 school year, the Kentucky Department of Education will identify Comprehensive Support and Improvement (CSI) schools referenced in KRS 160.346.

There are three ways for a school to be identified for comprehensive support and improvement:

  • The school is among the lowest performing 5% of Title I or non-Title I schools by level in Kentucky;
  • The Title I or non-Title I high school has a four-year graduation rate of 80% or less; or
  • The Title I or non-Title I school was previously identified for Additional Targeted Support and Improvement (ATSI) for at least three years and have not exited

Once schools have been notified, they must work with local shareholders to develop and implement a comprehensive support and improvement plan.

By law, these plans must be informed by all the indicators in the state's accountability system, include evidence-based interventions, be based on a school-level needs assessment, and identify resource inequities that must be addressed.
