How do I publish my plan so that it is available to the public?
In order for a plan to be published, it must go through an approval process in CIMS, which varies based on the survey (e.g., SIP, DIAP) and whether the respective school or district is subject to the requirements of Differentiated Accountability. In all cases, the process ends with a district contact who has "Can Approve" access clicking the Approve button in Tracking.
Once a plan is approved, it will be published by an automated process that runs on a regular schedule throughout the day. After approval, but before publishing, the plan will be locked to editing. Once a snapshot of the plan is published, the plan is reopened for editing. For more detailed information about the approval processes, see the SIP Submission How-to Guide located in the Navigation Guides tab of the Toolkit.
