Comprehensive Support and Improvement (CSI) Schools
Ohio uses the accountability measures on the Ohio School Report Cards as gauges for continuous improvement. In alignment with federal requirements (Every Student Succeeds Act [ESSA] section 1111(c)(4)(D)) and Ohio’s Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) state plan, the state’s lowest-performing schools are identified as Comprehensive Support and Improvement (CSI) schools.
Identification of Comprehensive Support and Improvement Schools will be based on overall performance criteria:
- Each Title I Served school will be ranked based on the overall rating on the Ohio School Report Card. The lowest 5% of these rankings will be identified as Comprehensive Support and Improvement.
- Any public school with a four-year graduation rate of 67 percent or lower will also be identified as CSI.
Schools will be identified using the ESSA-aligned criteria with the release of the 2022 Ohio School Report Cards, which uses the performance data for schools from the 2021-2022 school year. Schools will then be identified every three years following the 2023 identification.
- The school shows two consecutive years of improvement above the cut score that led to their original identification and their school performance is higher than the lowest 5 percent of schools (based on the Ohio School Report Card ratings) for two consecutive school years
- The school earns a four-year graduation rate of better than 67 percent for two consecutive school years
