Additional Targeted Support and Improvement (ATSI)

From the Pennsylvania Department of Education: 

Consistent with ESSA requirements, Pennsylvania will use the same, basic three-step approach to designate schools in which one or more student groups face both academic and student success challenges.

Like Comprehensive Support and Improvement (CSI) schools, Additional Targeted Support and Improvement (A-TSI) schools will be designated every three years, when one or more student groups in a school perform below the CSI thresholds for academic proficiency, academic growth, and at least one additional indicator.  Also consistent with CSI determinations, any school in which the combined four- and five-year adjusted cohort graduation rate for one or more student groups is 67 percent or below will be designated for A-TSI.

ASD currently has two schools that hold A-TSI designations, Allen & Dieruff High Schools. Below are the most recent A-TSI plans.
