Federal Programs

The Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA) of 1965, as amended by The Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) of 2015, requires the Georgia Department of Education (GaDOE) to collect a Consolidated LEA Improvement Plan (CLIP) from each local educational agency (LEA) in the state receiving federal funds. The CLIP contains descriptions, information, assurances, and other materials that are considered by the GaDOE as absolutely necessary to define how the LEA will support its students under the law. The plan is to be updated as needed, and some components are updated annually throughout the duration of the plan. Even though an LEA submits only the minimum required information in its consolidated local plan or application, it must still meet all ESEA requirements for each program for which the LEA accepts federal funds.  

The Streamlined CLIP (S-CLIP) option is an alternative ESSA CLIP submission path. In using this option, the LEA will review and evaluate progress from the FY21 S-CLIP, if applicable, and will complete and submit an updated FY22 S-CLIP along with a parent and family engagement policy, an equity action plan, a foster care transportation plan, and a Title I Part C ID&R plan, when the ID&R plan is applicable. Below are the documents that were approved by the GADOE for the Douglas County School System FY22.
