Comprehensive School Improvement Plan LEA


On this page...


The purpose of the Comprehensive School Improvement Plan (CSIP) is to chart the course for improved student learning. Through CSIP development, districts and schools will work collaboratively to review data, set goals, determine strategies or actions to accomplish goals, and evaluate the results. This process of continuous improvement focuses efforts on instructional improvement linked to student learning.


School districts and accredited nonpublic schools will develop, implement, and file with the department a comprehensive school improvement plan that includes, but is not limited to, demonstrated school, parental, and community involvement in assessing educational needs; establishing local education standards; and student achievement levels. Iowa Code section 256.7

Submission Requirements

The CSIP must be submitted through the Consolidated Accountability and Support Application (CASA) annually by September 15. A complete outline of all information collected in the CSIP and information about how to access the system can be found on the CASA Webpage.
