Performance Improvement Plan

Section 123(b)(1-5) of the Perkins Legislation provides for Local Performance 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.

This improvement plan is to be included, along with any progress made, with the grant narrative due May 19, 2023. which can be found here:  Perkins Administration – Nebraska Department of Education

Based on the analysis, a plan for improving performance, may include:

  • A review to determine the quality and accuracy of the data submitted
  • Professional development for staff/faculty that results in improved achievement on the core indicator of performance
  • Strategies for improvement of the instructional program or experiences that may result in improved student achievement on the core indicator of performance

A financial obligation from the basic grant may be made in the performance improvement plan to assist with strategies to improve student performance. If a core indicator of performance is missed for three consecutive years, it is a requirement to obligate grant funds to strategies that result in the improvement of student achievement in the measure.

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 (PIP) for each indicator missed. A missed indicator reflects an “X” below.

For more information on specific LEA performance, please visit Perkins Report Cards.

PLEASE NOTE:  For PIPs reflecting performance from 2022-2023, please note Nebraska’s performance targets for 2S1, 2S2, and 2S3 have been updated for 2023-2024. If your current (22-23) performance meets these future targets, your district/consortium will not be required to develop and implement a PIP. The table below reflects this.
