School Continuous Improvement Plan (SCIP)
Title I is a program from the U.S. Department of Education that provides extra help for students to learn at their grade level.
The school reviews student data to make a plan for the extra help needed each year. In Saint Paul Public Schools, this plan is called the School Comprehensive Improvement Plan, or SCIP.
