Unified Improvement Planning (UIP) was introduced in Colorado in 2009 to streamline improvement planning components of state and federal accountability requirements. The ultimate intent was for schools to create a single plan that truly reflects improvement planning activities, and thereby reduces the total number of plans and documentation required by both the state and CSI. The Evaluation and Assessment team offers CSI schools training, technical assistance, and access to resources to complete a unified improvement plan that adheres to CSI and state expectations. CSI also submits and provides a Unified Improvement Plan to the state based on the performance of the schools in its portfolio.
