Comprehensive School Improvement Plans

Schools districts in Iowa submit a revised five-year Comprehensive School Improvement Plan (CSIP) by September 15 of the school year to the Iowa Department of Ecuation following the comprehensive site visit specified in Iowa Code section 256.11 which incorporates, when appropriate, areas of improvement noted by the school improvement visitation team. 281--Iowa Administrative Code 12.8(2).

School districts are required to revise and recertify their CSIPs by the September 15th date of the next school year. Revisions, in accordance to Chapter 12, are based on any or all of the following actions:
  • completion of a site visit,
  • grade level changes (as in cases of reorganizations),
  • and/ or funding stream changes.
School districts and non-public schools are encouraged to annually update their CSIPs as ongoing planning documents.
