Title I School Wide Addendum 

The Colorado Department of Education (CDE) created the Unified Improvement Plan (UIP) to streamline improvement planning efforts. The UIP incorporates state and federal accountability requirements into a single improvement plan, and provides a roadmap to assist districts and schools in this work.

Plans were first submitted to CDE for publication on April 15, 2011. CDE reviewed and approved district turnaround plans and plans identified under ESEA programs (i.e., Titles IA, IIA, and III), and provided support as requested in the development of all other plan types. The published plan may reflect revisions districts and schools have made to their plans following official submission to CDE each year on April 15.

As planning is an ongoing process, the posted unified improvement plan documents reflect a "point in time" submission.

Beginning in 2011-12, all districts and schools have been expected to complete an improvement plan using the current CDE unified improvement plan templates.
