Georgia's local educational agency (LEA) Consolidated Application includes The Consolidated LEA Improvement Plan, or “CLIP”. The CLIP
fulfills the need for a plan from LEAs to be collected by the Georgia
Department of Education (GaDOE) to define how the LEAs will support their
students when accepting federal funds under The Elementary and Secondary
Education Act of 1965, as amended by the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) of
2015. As part of the annual CLIP process, LEAs monitor the progress of their action steps. Within the CLIP application, LEAs use the CLIP Progress Monitoring Tool to evaluate how their plans are addressing identified needs. This tool captures the status of LEA action steps twice a year and is used to assist LEAs and GaDOE with evaluating the impact of federal funds on those identified needs.
