Prepare Your Preliminary School/Comprehensive Educational Plans And Online Attestations In iPlan School Type: All schools Action required by: June 30; July 31 Workflow Subcategory: School Improvement As noted in the April 25 edition of Principals’ Weekly, School Leadership Teams (SLTs) must review and update their preliminary 2017–18 School/Comprehensive Educational Plans (S/CEPs), including five goals, using the online document editor in the iPlan Portal by June 30. You and your SLT should update your S/CEP and other planning documents and must click “Share for Review.” You must also complete an online attestation stating that your preliminary 2017–18 school-based budget is aligned with your S/CEP by this same date. New this year, iPlan will remain open throughout the summer so that superintendents can provide you with feedback, and so that you and your SLT have online access to iPlan. During this time, SLTs may continue to update educational planning documents based on feedback provided in the coordinated review period, which will take place from July 5 through August 31. Your School/District Improvement Liaisons (SDILs) may reach out to you to provide technical assistance in plan development using the iPlan portal, and support your school in meeting key dates reflected in the S/CEP and Document Development Timeline. To access the tentative draft timeline (slide 3), and information on updating S/CEPs, including the online attestation process, see here. You may also access the enhanced Help page of the iPlan Portal for additional resources and guidance. For questions regarding S/CEP development, contact the School/District Improvement Liaison who is associated with your superintendent; for technical assistance with iPlan, email email@example.com.
