State-Identified Schools

  • Comprehensive Support and Improvement (CSI)

    Beginning in January 2019, the State identified schools for Comprehensive Support and Improvement (CSI) status based on any of the following results on the California School Dashboard:

    • Any high school with 67% or below in graduation (based on 2-year average)
    • Title I schools where all indicators are red
    • Title I schools where all indicators are a combination of red and orange
    • Title I schools where all but one indicator are red
    • Title I schools where if there are five or more indicators, the majority are red

    CSI schools were also identified in January 2020 and will be identified every three years thereafter to align with federal requirements and the Local Control Accountability Plan cycle.  A link of the list of CSI schools within LAUSD that are identified by the State can be found below.  The full list of schools identified across the State, including independent charter schools, can also be accessed below.

     Once identified as CSI, schools must complete the following mandates:

    • Write a plan with stakeholders that:

    -is informed by all indicators

    -is based on the findings of a comprehensive needs assessment

    -identifies resource inequities

    -includes evidence-based interventions

    • Implement the plan

     The School Plan for Student Achievement (SPSA) includes the above plan requirements.  The plan will be approved by the school, the district and the State and will be monitored by the State.

    Additional Targeted Support and Improvement (ATSI)

    In January 2019, the State also identified schools for Additional Targeted Support and Improvement (ATSI) status.  For schools that have not been identified as CSI that have one or more student group(s) that meet(s) any of the following criteria based on two consecutive years on the California School Dashboard:

    • All indicators are red (must have at least two indicators)
    • All indicators are a combination of red and orange
    • All but one indicator are red
    • If there are five or more indicators, the majority are red

    A student group may meet the criteria based on a different color combination from one year to the next, but the same student group must meet the criteria in both years.

    Similarly to CSI schools, ATSI schools were identified in January 2019, January 2020 and will be identified every three years thereafter to align with federal requirements and the Local Control Accountability Plan cycle.  A link to the list of ATSI schools, including student groups identified within LAUSD by the State, is  below.  The full list of schools identified across the State, including independent charter schools, can also be accessed below.

    Once identified as ATSI, schools must complete the following mandates:

    • Write a plan with stakeholders that:

    -is informed by all indicators

    -is based on the findings of a comprehensive needs assessment

    -identifies resource inequities

    -includes evidence-based interventions

    • Implement the plan

    The School Plan for Student Achievement (SPSA) includes the above plan requirements.  For ATSI schools, the plan is approved by the school and district and monitored by the LEA.

    Additional Targeted Support and Improvement (ATSI)

    Each year, the California Department of Education reviews school data on the California School Dashboard to determine if a school meets exit criteria (i.e., the school is no longer identified for support and improvement based on improved student outcomes).  A link to the list of schools in LAUSD that met exit criteria such that they are not identified as CSI or ATSI in January 2020 is below.
