Screened Out? Some States May Underidentify Schools with Low-Performing Student Subgroups

The Every Student Succeeds Act requires states to identify schools with struggling students for three types of support: comprehensive (CSI), additional targeted (ATS), or targeted support and improvement (TSI). The law allows states to select ATS schools exclusively from those already identified for TSI. But by “screening” schools in this way, some states may miss schools eligible for support. This analysis examines the states that use this approach.
