Alabama's Continuous Improvement Plan (ACIP) is used by all schools in improvement and Title I schools not in improvement to facilitate the planning process.
The ACIP is developed by a school team that is representative of the challenges being addressed with support from the LEA.
Team members include the principal, counselor, district school improvement specialist (or other designee), appropriate content-area teachers, parent representatives, and student representatives (as appropriate).
An ACIP is effective for a two-year period and is reviewed and revised monthly.
