Are all public schools in Florida required to have a school improvement plan (SIP)?

No. Section 1001.42, Florida Statutes (F.S.), requires districts to annually approve and require implementation of a SIP for each school in the district which has a school grade of "D" or "F". This includes virtual schools and alternative centers such as DJJ or ESE facilities.  

Charter schools are exempt from this requirement, pursuant to section 1002.33(16), Florida Statutes, unless they have a grade of D or F, in which case they must follow the requirements of Rule 6A-1.099827, Florida Administrative Code.
