Streamlined UIP Template - New! 

We are excited to announce that the Colorado Department of Education is rolling out a streamlined Unified Improvement Plan (UIP) Template. The changes stem from consideration of feedback over time and two years of piloting from educators, administrators, and stakeholders. Please note, this template will be available as an opt-in choice for districts for the 2024-25 plan. 

Key Features of New UIP Template: 

  • Streamlined Layout: The layout of the new template has been reorganized to better align with school and district planning processes, making it easier for users to navigate and complete. 
  • Clarified Instructions: Specificity has been added within the template, ensuring that users have clear guidance, samples, and resources for what information needs to be provided in each section. 
  • Reduced Completion Time: Sections have been shortened and consolidated to minimize redundancy and streamline the entry process, ultimately saving time for plan development. 
  • Enhanced Visual Appeal: The updated template features a refreshed design, with improved formatting, navigation, and readability to enhance the overall user experience. 

These resources are designed to support use and understanding of the streamlined UIP template available for use in 2024-25.
