In a FAQ document provided to states, the U.S. Department of Education’s Office of Elementary and Secondary Education said any school with the status of comprehensive support and improvement, targeted support and improvement, or additional targeted support and improvement in the 2019-20 school year will keep that identification status in the 2020-21 school year.

However, schools identified as CSI based on their graduation rates may exit based on improved 2019-20 rates. But regardless of the data, states can choose to have those schools maintain their CSI status for the 2020-21 school year. 

According to a plan addendum template provided, states can also move their identification and measurements of interim progress timelines by one year and continue to provide funds for districts previously identified as needing supports.
