Accountability & Improvement


View the 2013-14 UIP Templates and Addenda

The 2013-14 district and school level Unified Improvement Planning templates and addenda forms are finalized and available at: http://www.cde.state.co.us/uip/UIP_Templates.asp.

All districts and schools, including new schools, are expected to use the current CDE templates to ensure that state, federal and program accountability requirements are met. Based on feedback from the field and CDE's review of plans, changes to the templates were kept to a minimum. A summary of the changes can be found at http://bit.ly/12oVWXJ. The pre-populated reports will be distributed to districts in early September (two weeks after the release of the preliminary performance frameworks).

To support schools and districts in updating plans, a fall training schedule and resources for Improvement Planning (e.g., UIP Handbook and UIP Quality Criteria) are being finalized and will be made available soon.
