2021 CSI and ATSI FAQs

Waiver for General Education Provisions Act (GEPA) Flexibilities

  1. Are Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) CSI LEA and COE subgrant timelines extended for Fiscal Year (FY) 2019 subgrants?

    Funding

    On September 10, 2021, the United States Department of Education approved California’s waiver under the ESEA Section 8401(b). Section 421(b) of the GEPA extends the period of availability of FY 2019 funds for programs in which the State Educational Agency participates under its approved consolidated State plan until September 30, 2022.

    As a result, the subgrant period for FY 2019 CSI funds ends September 30, 2022. Subrecipients of the ESSA CSI LEA or COE subgrants now have an additional 12 months to expend their FY 2019 CSI funds. Additional reporting requirements and due dates for the FY 2019 ESSA LEA and COE subgrants are posted on the following web pages:


    Planning

    As a result of the extended period of availability of FY 2019 CSI funding, CSI Plan implementation timelines have also been expanded to allow LEAs to continue implementing their 2020–21 CSI Plan(s) in the 2021–22 school year. As indicated above, the period of availability of FY 2019 CSI funds has been extended to allow LEAs to continue using their FY 2019 CSI funds to implement its CSI Plan(s) through September 30, 2022. However, LEAs are still required to provide ongoing support to its CSI-eligible school(s) until the school(s) are no longer eligible for CSI.

    It is expected that an LEA will revise its 2020–21 CSI Plan(s) as is reasonable/practicable/necessary, to ensure that its CSI-eligible school(s) continues to receive the supports and interventions consistent with its CSI Plan(s) in the 2021–22 school year and beyond.

  2. Will my LEA or COE still be required to report FY 2019 CSI expenditures through September 30, 2022?

    As long as the LEA or COE has a remaining cash balance and has not elected to closeout its FY 2019 ESSA CSI subgrant, it will be required to submit FY 2019 fiscal and other required reporting data through the end of the extended subgrant period. The FY 2019 ESSA CSI LEA and COE subgrant reporting due dates have been adjusted to accommodate the extended period of availability of FY 2019 funds through September 30, 2022.

    To view the timeline of the reporting requirements and due dates for the FY 2019 ESSA CSI subgrants, please visit the CSI LEA Subgrant Reporting Requirements web page for LEAs and the CSI COE Subgrant Reporting Requirements web page for COEs.

  3. Does an LEA or COE need to wait until September 30, 2022, to closeout its FY 2019 ESSA CSI subgrant?

    No, the LEA or COE, may closeout its FY 2019 ESSA CSI LEA or COE subgrant once it has expended all of its FY 2019 CSI funds, or at any time it deems necessary.

    If an LEA or COE subgrant closeout request has been approved prior to the final reporting period, the LEA or COE must liquidate its funds within 90 days of reporting its final expenditures. However, the LEA or COE may request and receive an extension of the liquidation period, including up to 90 days of the close of the grant period, if needed (only applies to LEAs who have closed out its subgrant prior to the final reporting period). LEAs may submit this request by utilizing the GMART Requests tab “Ask a Question” feature..

    For more information about the ESSA CSI subgrant closeout process, please visit the following web pages:

  4. Is CSI waived for the 2021–22 school year?

    No, CSI is not waived for the 2021–22 school year. The waiver of Section 421(b) of the GEPA extends the period of availability of FY 2019 CSI funds for an additional 12 months, but it did not waive the federal requirements under ESSA, Section 1111(d)(1) to develop and implement a CSI Plan in schools requiring support.

    Therefore, it is the expectation that the LEA continue implementing CSI program requirements until its CSI-eligible schools are no longer eligible for CSI. The COE is expected to continue to support its LEAs that have schools eligible for CSI until the COE has no LEAs with schools eligible for CSI.

  5. Is my LEA required to update its CSI Plan(s) as a result of the extended period of availability of FY 2019 CSI funds through September 30, 2022?

    Regardless of whether or not an LEA has closed out its FY 2019 ESSA CSI LEA subgrant, the LEA is required to update its CSI Plan(s) and provide ongoing support to its CSI-eligible school(s) until the school(s) are no longer eligible for CSI.

    The waiver only extends the timeline for LEAs to expend their FY 2019 CSI funds until September 30, 2022, but it does not waive CSI program implementation requirements for LEAs. Depending on where an LEA is in the process of developing and approving/adopting its CSI Plan(s), amendments or revisions may be required.

    • For LEAs that utilize the School Plan for Student Achievement (SPSA) as their CSI Plan(s), there is no statutory deadline/timeline for development and approval of Title I, Part A schoolwide plans and LEAs should adhere to their local policies and procedures for the development and approval/adoption for this plan.

    • For LEAs (single school districts and charter schools) that utilize the Local Control and Accountability Plan (LCAP) as their CSI Plan, LEAs should continue to adhere to established deadlines and processes for the development and approval/adoption for this plan.

    Regardless of the template that an LEA uses to develop its CSI Plan, CDE guidance has been for CSI Plan development and approval to be conducted prior to the start of the school year so that implementation of the CSI Plan can begin by the first day of school.

    Additional questions regarding the SPSA or LCAP can be sent to LCFF@cde.ca.gov and questions regarding CSI Plans can be sent to SISO@cde.ca.gov.

  6. Have there been any changes to the Authorized Use of Funds for the ESSA CSI LEA and COE subgrants as a result of the waiver under Section 421(b) of the GEPA?

    The waiver of Section 421(b) of the GEPA only extends the period of availability of FY 2019 CSI funds until September 30, 2022, and did not change the flexibilities or requirements that LEAs and COEs have with expending their FY 2019 CSI funds.

    For more information about the Authorized Use of Funds for the ESSA CSI LEA subgrants, please visit the ESSA CSI LEA Authorized Use of Funds web page.


  7. Will an LEA still be required to complete the Federal Reporting requirements for FY 2019 CSI funds since the period of availability of these funds extends to September 30, 2022?

    Yes, LEAs that submitted the FY 2019 ESSA CSI LEA Application for Funding and accepted FY 2019 funds will be required to submit the required federal reporting data. The Federal Reporting Timeline for FY 2019 CSI Funds has been adjusted to accommodate the extended period of availability of FY 2019 funds to September 30, 2022.

  8. Are ESSA CSI LEA or COE subgrant timelines also extended for FY 2018 and FY 2020 ESSA CSI subgrants?

    No, FY 2018 and FY 2020 ESSA CSI LEA and COE subgrants are not included in the waiver of Section 421(b) of the GEPA and only applies to FY 2019 CSI funds. It is expected that FY 2018 and FY 2020 CSI funds will maintain their current subgrant end date as follows.

    • FY 2018 CSI funds – Ends September 30, 2021
    • FY 2020 CSI funds – Ends September 30, 2022

    To view the timeline of the reporting requirements and due dates for the FY 2019 ESSA CSI subgrants, please visit the CSI LEA Subgrant Reporting Requirements web page for LEAs and the CSI COE Subgrant Reporting Requirements web page for COEs.

    CSI Plan(s) implemented with FY 2019 CSI funds, should continue to be implemented in alignment with the adjusted FY 2019 ESSA CSI LEA subgrant timeline located on the CSI LEA Subgrant Reporting Requirements web page.

2020–21 Federal Waiver of Accountability, Eligibility for School Assistance, and Related Reporting Requirements

Program Requirements

  1. Does the 2020–21 federal waiver of accountability waive the requirement for local educational agencies (LEAs) with schools eligible on the 2019–20 Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) Assistance Status Data Files for CSI and ATSI to develop and implement CSI and/or ATSI plans for the 2021–22 school year (SY)?

    No, the 2020–21 federal waiver of accountability, eligibility for school assistance, and related reporting requirements does not waive program requirements related to CSI and/or ATSI plans. The waiver only addresses the eligibility for school assistance timeline for CSI and ATSI.

    For more information about eligibility or the 2020–21 federal waiver of accountability, eligibility for school assistance, and related reporting requirements, please visit the COVID-19 Accountability FAQs web page.

  2. What are the program requirements for the 2021–22 SY for LEAs with CSI-eligible schools on the 2019–20 ESSA Assistance Status Data Files for CSI and/or ATSI?

    LEAs with schools eligible on the 2019–20 ESSA Assistance Status Data Files for CSI and/or ATSI are required to develop, approve, implement, monitor, and evaluate CSI and/or ATSI plans during the 2021–22 SY.

    CSI planning requirements are located on the Program Requirements tab on the CSI web page and ATSI planning requirements are located on the Program Requirements tab on the TSI/ATSI web page.

  3. Must LEAs with CSI-eligible schools on the 2019–20 ESSA Assistance Status Data Files complete the CSI Prompts located in the Plan Summary section of the 2021–22 Local Control and Accountability Plan (LCAP)?

    Yes, LEAs with CSI-eligible schools on the 2019–20 ESSA Assistance Status Data Files must complete the CSI Prompts located in the Plan Summary section of the 2021–22 LCAP. Timelines and instructions for completing and submitting the 2021–22 LCAP and CSI prompts are located on the LCAP web page.

  4. When must the LEA develop, approve, and begin implementing the 2021–22 CSI and/or ATSI plan(s)?

    There is an expectation that CSI and/or ATSI plans for the 2021–22 school year are fully developed and approved at the local level (school and LEA) no later than the first day of the 2021–22 school year. This will ensure that students and the school receive a full year of intervention and support consistent with the LEA’s CSI and/or ATSI plan for that school.

    A 2021–22 CSI and/or ATSI plan development, approval, and implementation timeline is provided in the bulleted list below:

    • Winter/spring 2021: Develop 2021–22 CSI and/or ATSI plan(s)

    • Winter/spring/summer/Very early fall 2021: Locally approve 2021–22 CSI and/or ATSI plan(s)

    • Start of the 2021–22 school year: Begin implementation of the 2021–22 CSI and/or ATSI plan(s)

  5. Do LEAs with schools eligible for assistance for CSI and/or ATSI on the 2019–20 ESSA Assistance Status Data Files still have to use the School Plan for Student Achievement (SPSA) to meet CSI and/or ATSI planning requirements?

    For the 2021–22 school year and for each eligible school, the LEA and its school (Title I or non-Title I) must use the SPSA planning process to meet CSI and/or ATSI planning requirements.

    Single School Districts and Charter schools may use the 2021–22 LCAP, including stakeholder engagement requirements, to serve as the CSI Plan, provided that the LCAP meets CSI planning requirements consistent with ESSA Section 1111(d)(1).

    While the CDE does not mandate the SPSA template or any other school-level planning template, as a convenience, the CDE has developed the SPSA template that, if completed consistent with the provided instructions and is implemented with fidelity, meets all CSI and/or ATSI planning requirements, as applicable. The CDE's SPSA template can be found on the LCAP web page under Other Planning Templates.

    If an LEA elects to use its own SPSA template to document its school improvement efforts, then it must ensure that its template addresses all school improvement planning requirements for CSI and/or ATSI.

CSI Funding

  1. Does the 2020–21 federal waiver of accountability, eligibility for school assistance, and related reporting requirements impact CSI funding for the 2020–21 school year (SY)? What about CSI funding for the 2021–22 SY?

    The 2020–21 federal waiver of accountability, eligibility for school assistance, and related reporting requirements does not impact funding for CSI.

    • Local educational agencies (LEAs) with schools eligible for CSI on the 2018–19 Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) Assistance Status Data Files will continue to receive their fiscal year (FY) 2018 funds to support CSI Plan implementation through September 30, 2021.

    • LEAs with schools eligible for CSI on the 2019–20 ESSA Assistance Status Data Files will continue to receive their FY 2019 CSI funds to support CSI Plan implementation of their 2020–21 CSI Plans. Due to California’s approved 2021–22 federal waiver under the ESEA Section 8401(b), FY 2019 CSI funds end September 30, 2022.

    • The CDE processed the first apportionment of FY 2020 CSI funds. FY 2020 CSI funds were awarded to LEAs with CSI-eligible schools on the 2019–20 ESSA Assistance Status Data Files and are used to develop and implement 2021–22 CSI Plans. FY 2020 CSI funds end September 30, 2022.

    CSI funding information is located on the CDE CSI LEA Funding tab. Also, the LEA may review its approved FYs 2019 and 2020 Applications for Funding for additional subgrant details and assurances on the CDE CSI LEA Applications web page.

  2. Are there additional extensions to CSI funding and subgrant reporting timelines as a result of the 2020–21 federal waiver of accountability, eligibility for school assistance, and related reporting requirements?

    The 2020–21 federal waiver of accountability, eligibility for school assistance, and related reporting requirements does not waive the period of availability of CSI funds. The current periods of availability for the FYs 2018, 2019, and 2020 CSI funds are indicated in the bullets below:

    • FY 2018 Funds for CSI: September 30, 2021
    • FY 2019 Funds for CSI: September 30, 2022
    • FY 2020 Funds for CSI: September 30, 2022

    As with CSI funding, all current CSI subgrant reporting timelines remain the same and have not changed. LEA subgrant reporting timelines can be found on the CDE CSI LEA Fiscal Information web page.

  3. Are there any changes to how CSI funds can be used?

2020 CSI FAQs

2019–20 School Year Federal Waiver of Accountability, Eligibility for School Assistance, and Related Reporting Requirements

2018–19 Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) CSI Subgrants ended on September 30, 2021, and the FAQs provided below are for informational purposes only.

  1. Are CSI subgrant timelines being extended for fiscal year (FY) 2018 subgrants?

    On April 22, 2020, the United States Department of Education approved California’s waiver under the ESEA Section 8401(b). Section 421(b) of the GEPA extends the period of availability of Fiscal Year (FY) 2018 funds for programs in which the state educational agency participates under its approved consolidated State plan until September 30, 2021.

    As a result, the FY 2018–19 CSI subgrant period ends September 30, 2021. Subrecipients now have an additional 12 months in which to expend FY 2018 CSI funds. New FY 2018–19 reporting requirements and due dates for local educational agencies (LEAs) are located on the CSI LEA Subgrant Reporting Requirements web page. New FY 2018–19 reporting requirements and due dates for county offices of education (COEs) are located on the CSI COE Subgrant Reporting Requirements web page.

    FY 2018 ESSA CSI Plan implementation timelines have been expanded to allow the LEA to continue implementing its 2019–20 CSI Plan in the 2020–21 school year. As noted above, the period of availability of FY 2018 CSI funds has been waived to allow the LEA to continue using its FY 2018 CSI funds to implement its CSI Plan through September 30, 2021. It is the expectation that the LEA will revise its 2019–20 CSI Plan, as is reasonable/practicable/necessary, to ensure that the school continues to receive the supports and interventions consistent with its CSI Plan in the 2020–21 school year.

  2. Are CSI subgrant timelines being extended for FY 2019 subgrants?

    The FY 2019–20 ESSA CSI LEA and COE subgrant periods began March 25, 2020, and will end September 30, 2022. The first apportionment is based on an approved application for funding. The CDE processed the first apportionment of 25 percent of each LEA’s and COE’s total allocation in April 2020. Final FY 2019–20 allocations for LEAs are located on the LEA Funding Results web page. Final FY 2019–20 allocations for COEs are located at the COE Funding Results web page.

    Subsequent apportionments are based on claimed expenditures less prior cumulative payments and will follow scheduled reporting due dates that are established throughout the subgrant period. Due to school closures as a result of the coronavirus pandemic, the CDE adjusted the FY 2019–20 ESSA CSI reporting requirements and due dates. Adjusted FY 2019–20 reporting requirements and due dates for LEAs are located on the CSI LEA Subgrant Reporting Requirements web page. Adjusted FY 2019–20 reporting requirements and due dates for COEs are located on the CSI COE Subgrant Reporting Requirements web page.

    The CDE is working with the State Board of Education (SBE) and the United States Department of Education (ED) to expand the timeline to develop the 2020–21 CSI Plans. This would allow LEAs with more time to partner with stakeholders to develop their 2020–21 CSI Plans prior to beginning implementation. The Federal Waiver on Assessment and Accountability, that was granted to California on March 27, 2020, requires California to assure that any school that is eligible for CSI will maintain that assistance status in the 2020–21 school year and continue to receive supports and interventions consistent with the school’s support and improvement plan in the 2020–21 school year.

    An LEA with CSI-eligible schools on the 2018–19 ESSA Assistance Status Data Files that did not exit on the 2019–20 ESSA Assistance Status Data Files, may revise, as is reasonable/practicable/necessary, its 2019–20 CSI Plan to be implemented in the 2020–21 school year. An LEA with a CSI-eligible school on the 2019–20 ESSA Assistance Status Data Files that was not eligible on the 2018–19 ESSA Assistance Status Data Files, will need to develop a 2020–21 CSI Plan to be implemented in the 2020–21 school year.

  3. May FY 2018 CSI funds be used to support CSI planning activities for schools that are newly eligible for assistance on the 2019–20 ESSA Assistance Status Data Files?

    No, FY 2018 CSI funds are allocated to LEAs with CSI-eligible schools on the 2018–19 ESSA Assistance Status Data Files and must be used to continue to implement CSI Plans for those CSI-eligible schools to improve student outcomes in those schools. The LEA may not reduce its FY 2018 Funding Plan to reallocate FY 2018 CSI funds across school assistance eligibility cycles.

  4. Will my LEA still be required to report FY 2018 CSI expenditures through September 30, 2021?

    Yes, the LEA is required to submit FY 2018 CSI expenditures in order for the CDE to continue to distribute the LEA’s allocation through the end of the subgrant period. The FY 2018 ESSA CSI LEA subgrant reporting due dates have been adjusted to accommodate the extended period of availability to September 30, 2021. The SISO is in the process of building out another 12 months of reporting requirements in the Grant Management and Reporting Tool (GMART) through September 30, 2021. This requirement also applies to the FY 2018–19 ESSA CSI COE subgrants. New FY 2018–19 reporting requirements and due dates for LEAs are located on the CSI LEA Subgrant Reporting Requirements web page. New FY 2018–19 reporting requirements and due dates for COEs are located on the CSI COE Subgrant Reporting Requirements web page.

  5. Do I need to wait until September 30, 2021, to close out my FY 2018 ESSA CSI subgrant?

    No, the LEA or COE, respectively, may close out its FY 2018–19 ESSA CSI subgrant once it has expended all of its FY 2018 CSI funds. In this case, the LEA/COE should liquidate its funds within 90 days of reporting final expenditures. However, the LEA/COE may request and receive an extension of the liquidation period, including up to 90 days of the close of the grant period, if needed (only applies to LEAs who have closed out its subgrant prior to the final reporting period). LEAs may submit this request by utilizing the GMART Requests tab “Ask a Question” feature..

  6. Does the waiver of Section 421(b) of the GEPA include FY 2019 CSI funds?

    No, the waiver of Section 421(b) of the GEPA only applies to FY 2018 CSI funds. FY 2019 CSI funds are currently set to end September 30, 2022. Should this timeline change, the CDE will communicate the information and provide guidance.

    The CDE has adjusted the subgrant reporting due dates for the new FY 2019–20 ESSA CSI subgrants to provide subrecipients with additional time to report expenditures throughout the established subgrant period. It is anticipated that the CDE will host a webinar in August/September 2020 to review reporting requirements and apportionment timelines for the FY 2019–20 ESSA CSI subgrant funds. Adjusted FY 2019–20 reporting requirements and due dates for LEAs are located on the CSI LEA Subgrant Reporting Requirements web page. Adjusted FY 2019–20 reporting requirements and due dates for COEs are located on the CSI COE Subgrant Reporting Requirements web page.

  7. Is CSI waived for the 2019–20 school year?

    No, CSI is not waived for 2019–20 school year. It is the expectation that LEAs and COEs will continue with their CSI work as much as is reasonable/practicable/necessary. LEAs and COEs are encouraged to think creatively and innovatively about how to accomplish school improvement work under the shelter-in-place order and to leverage local decision making about what is best for its learning community and how to continue to provide supports and interventions consistent with the LEA’s CSI Plan.

  8. Do schools eligible for CSI in January 2020 still have to complete a School Plan for Student Achievement (SPSA)?

    Schools eligible for CSI in January 2020 are required to develop a CSI Plan. Schools operating a Title I, Part A schoolwide program can maintain the use of the SPSA to meet both schoolwide and CSI planning requirements.

    While there is no statutory deadline/timeline for development and approval of Title I, Part A schoolwide plans, CDE’s guidance has been for CSI Plan development and approval to be conducted prior to the start of the school year so that implementation of the CSI Plan can begin by the first day of the school year. The CDE continues to work with the State Board of Education and the U. S. Department of Education on an adjusted 2020–21 CSI Plan development and implementation timeline. The table below describes the proposed adjusted timeline to develop and implement the 2020–21 CSI Plan for schools eligible on the 2019–20 ESSA Assistance Status Data Files:

    March 2020
    to
    September/October 2020
    October 2020/
    November 2020
    December 2020/
    January 2021
    CSI Plan Development Activities
    School and LEA CSI Plan Approval/Adoption
    CSI Plan Implementation Begins

    The goal of the adjusted timeline is to provide maximum flexibility with CSI planning requirements while ensuring that schools continue to receive the resources, interventions, and supports needed to address student needs. As more information becomes available, the CDE will provide additional guidance to the LEA.

    Additional questions regarding the SPSA can be sent to LCFF@cde.ca.gov and questions regarding CSI Plans can be sent to SISO@cde.ca.gov.

  9. Is there any information on the SPSA, specifically for single school districts using the LCAP serving as the SPSA?

    Currently, there are no plans to waive or make changes to any language that would prohibit single school districts and charter schools from using the LCAP as the SPSA to meet federal school planning requirements.

    Statute requires schools operating Title I, Part A schoolwide programs to develop a SPSA annually with the Schoolsite council and receive approval by the local governing board. However, it does not provide a specific timeline as to when this development and approval must occur. The development and approval timeline for a SPSA remains a local decision based on what is best for the school and local community. Please email LCFF@cde.ca.gov with additional questions regarding the SPSA or the LCAP.

  10. Do LEAs have spending flexibility with their CSI funds? For example, can the LEA use CSI funds for summer learning activities?

    The ESSA allows flexibility for the LEA in determining the CSI interventions/strategies/activities that best meet the needs of their students and learning community. In addition, the ESSA requires that CSI Plans are evidence-based and that the selected interventions/strategies/activities match the identified needs and address the reason(s) for CSI eligibility. If, for example, the LEA determines that a summer learning program meets the requirements described above, and related expenditures are reasonable, necessary, allowable, and allocable, then CSI funds could be used for the summer learning program, as long as expenditures fall within the subgrant period timelines described below.  Furthermore, CSI funds can only be used to improve outcomes in schools eligible for CSI.

    FY 2018–19 ESSA CSI subgrants (for schools identified with the 2018–19 ESSA Assistance Status Data Files) began March 18, 2019, and will end September 30, 2021 (see GEPA waiver information in question number 1 above). All FY 2018 funds must be fully expended/obligated by the end date and liquidated within 90 days, thereafter. FY 2019–20 CSI subgrants (for schools eligible on the 2019–20 ESSA Assistance Status Data Files) began March 25, 2020, and will end September 30, 2022. All FY 2019 funds must be fully expended/obligated by the end date and liquidated within 90 days, thereafter.

    The ED’s Non-Regulatory Guidance: Using Evidence to Strengthen Education Investments External link opens in new window or tab. (PDF) provides helpful guidance regarding selecting and implementing evidence-based interventions/strategies/activities.
