Five SCCPSS Schools Exit State CSI and TSI Lists
Monday, February 12th, 2024
On January 9th, the Georgia Department of Education released the 2023-2024 schools identified for additional support, as required by federal law, along with the list of schools that made improvements needed to exit identified status. We are proud to announce that five of our schools have officially exited the Georgia Department of Education CSI and TSI lists.
Those schools are:
A.B. Williams Elementary School
Derenne Middle School
Largo-Tibet Elementary School
Brock Elementary School
Windsor Forest Elementary School
Typically, schools are identified for Comprehensive Support & Improvement (CSI) if they are among the lowest-performing 5% of Title I schools in the state when ranked according to their three-year CCRPI average or when they have a four-year adjusted cohort graduation rate less than or equal to 67%. However, Georgia updated its CSI entrance criteria for 2022 based on data limitations resulting from the pandemic.
For elementary and middle schools, in Stage 1, all Title I schools are ranked based on the Content Mastery component score. The lowest 10% move to Stage 2. In Stage 2, Title I schools are ranked based on the Progress Towards English Language Proficiency indicator score. The lowest three-quarters move to Stage 3. In Stage 3, Title I schools are ranked based on the Readiness component score. The target number (5% of total number of Title I schools) of schools with the lowest Readiness component score are identified for CSI support.
Schools Identified for TSI Support
The criteria for Targeted Support & Improvement (TSI) remain unchanged, but utilize the CCRPI indicators and components available in 2022.
TSI schools fall into one of the following categories:
· Consistently Underperforming Subgroup: The school has at least one subgroup performing in the lowest 5% of all schools in at least 50% of CCRPI components.
- Additional Targeted Support: Among all schools identified in the “Consistently Underperforming Subgroup" category, the school has at least one subgroup that is performing in the lowest 5% of schools in all CCRPI components.
How Schools Are Served
The Georgia Department of Education's Office of School Improvement works directly with CSI schools and provides assistance to help them improve the educational outcomes of their students. School districts are charged with providing supports to TSI schools, while the state provides professional learning and targeted technical assistance.
