The Mississippi Department of Education identifies schools for additional assistance and support, which includes professional development, leadership coaching, additional funding, and assistance to support the school’s transformation goals. We identify the schools that need the most assistance for their students to have the same opportunities for growth and success that exist for students in other schools. The Office of School Improvement (OSI) is responsible for supporting the systemic improvement and turnaround efforts of the lowest-performing schools.
The Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA), a federal law, requires that each state identify two types of schools for support and improvement:
- Comprehensive Support and Improvement (CSI) - CSI Quick Reference
- Targeted Support and Improvement (TSI) - TSI Quick Reference
- Additional Targeted Support and Improvement (ATSI)
