CSI (Comprehensive Support & Improvement 

The Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) requires state educational agencies to determine school eligibility for comprehensive support and improvement (CSI).  Local educational agencies (LEAs) with schools that meet the criteria for CSI must partner with stakeholders to locally develop and implement a plan to improve student outcomes.

School Eligibility Criteria for CSI
California uses the California School Dashboard (Dashboard) to determine school eligibility for CSI. School eligibility is based on the following two categories of schools

1. Low graduation rate

  • High schools with a graduation rate less than 67 percent averaged over two years (Based on 2018 Dashboard)
  • High schools with a graduation rate less than 68 percent averaged over two years (Beginning with 2019 Dashboard; Adopted by the State Board of Education on September 11, 2019)

2. Not less than the lowest-performing five percent of Title I Schools

  • Schools with all red indicators
  • Schools with all red but one indicator of another color
  • Schools with all red and orange indicators
  • Schools with five or more indicators where the majority are red
