The Comprehensive, Continuous Improvement Plan (CCIP) is a web-based planning and grants management tool, and connects district goals for improvement to budgeted activities. CCIP is used by local education agencies (LEAs), charter schools and non-LEAs to apply for federal and state funds:

  • Entitlement/Formula
    • Title I, Part A
    • Title I, Part C (Migrant Education)
    • Title I, Part D, Subpart1
    • Title II, Part A
    • Title III, Part A
    • Rural Education Achievement Program (RLIS and SRSA)
    • School Improvement Grant
  • Competitive
    • McKinney-Vento
    • 21st Century Community Learning Centers
    • After-School Quality Improvement


We are pleased to announce that, beginning 2016-2017, the Title III Application will be part of the consolidated application in the web-based grants management system, the Comprehensive Continuous Improvement Plan (CCIP). This move allows the Department of Public Instruction to streamline the application process and to build capacity to serve English learners (ELs) through collaboration.

The goals of CCIP are:

  • To reduce the administrative burden placed on LEAs and charter schools when applying for grant funding;
  • To increase transparency of grant activities to ensure funds are spent in accordance with federal and state guidelines; and
  • To consolidate the planning and application process in order to reduce duplication of information across the state.
