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:
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.
