When is the District Improvement and Assistance Plan (DIAP) due?

For districts with one or more Priority or Focus schools based upon 2017 school grades, the following timeline applies for the 2017-18 school year:

  • May 2017: 2017-18 DIAP opens in CIMS
  • By September 15, 2017: Draft DIAP forwarded in CIMS to the regional executive director (RED) for review and feedback
  • By September 29, 2017: DIAP feedback provided to the district by the RED; district then revises DIAP in CIMS, if needed, before approval by district school improvement contact
  • By October 13, 2017: DIAP approved by district school improvement contact and published in CIMS

Submission deadlines are important milestones for auditing purposes; however, the DIAP is intended to be used and refined throughout the year.
