During the 2021 legislative session, changes were made to the sections of statute related to district plans (Continuous Improvement Plans, Literacy Intervention Programs Plans, and College and Career Advising and Mentoring Plans). Please note the following:
- Continuous Improvement Plan (CIP) requirements were expanded.
- Districts and charter schools must maintain a Literacy Intervention Program Plan, but are no longer required to submit it for review.
- The College and Career Advising and Mentoring Plan is no longer required. Templates are provided for districts and charters who wish to update their plans for internal use.
If you have questions about developing or submitting your Continuous Improvement Plan, please contact Alison Henken.
Templates for the Required Continuous Improvement Plan
Districts and charters have options for updating their Continuous Improvement Plans, including using a locally-designed format. Due to changes in statute, we strongly encourage those using a locally-designed format to reference the 2021-22 Continuous Improvement Plan templates and Review Checklist to ensure your plan meets current requirements.
Continuous Improvement Plan
Templates for Other Plans
Effective July 1, 2021, both the Literacy Metrics and Advising Metrics have been integrated into the Continuous Improvement Plan. Districts and charters must maintain a Literacy Plan (narrative and budget are recommended), but are not required to submit it. District-level Literacy Plans must be aligned to the Idaho Comprehensive Literacy Plan. The State Board of Education revised Idaho’s plan in December 2020, so districts and charters should plan to update their Literacy Plan Narrative. The College and Career Advising and Mentoring Plan (narrative and budget) is now fully optional. The following templates are provided for your internal use.
