Targeted Support and Improvement Schools, or TSI Schools, are identified based on how schools are meeting the needs of ALL student subgroups (American Indian, Asian, Black, Hispanic, Pacific Islander, Multi-Race, Caucasian, English Learner, Students With Disabilities, and Economically Disadvantaged Students).
Schools that are performing well, but show different performance with different groups of students are given this designation and are eligible for additional support from the State. The schools with the biggest gaps in performance between groups of students cannot receive a rating higher than 3-Stars in the year of initial designation. Read more.
Schools that are identified as TSI for three years in a row can move on to a more intense intervention.
