Program Improvement Plan

(Click here for Guidelines)

Section 123(b)(1-5) of the Perkins Legislation provides for Local Program Improvement process. The basic parameters of the requirements are based on the performance data identified in Section 113 [Accountability Data]. If an eligible recipient does not meet 90% of the state goal the “. . . eligible recipient shall develop and implement a program improvement plan . . . during the first program year succeeding the program year for which the eligible recipient failed to meet any of the core indicators of performance.”

Based upon the 2017-18 performance data, a performance plan for measures not met is due during the 2018-19 program year. This improvement plan is to be included, along with any progress made, with the local application for the 2019-20 year.

The improvement plan must include categories of students for which there were quantifiable disparities or gaps in performance compared to all students or any other category of students.

The following is a list of Local Education Agencies (LEAs) failing to meet 90% of the state goal and, thus, required to submit a performance improvement plan.
