CSI Budget Justification
Once identified as CSI, schools must write and implement a plan with stakeholders that:
- is informed by all indicators
- is based on the findings of a comprehensive needs assessment
- identifies resource inequities, and
- includes evidence-based interventions
CSI schools are required to complete a CSI Budget Justification that describes how the school will use CSI funds to implement the CSI Addendum to the School Plan for Student Achievement (SPSA). The SPSA has been adapted for CSI schools (i.e., CSI Addendum) such that the above plan requirements are addressed. The plan will be approved by the school, the District and the State, and will be monitored by the State.
