The UIP Online System has been developed to generate and maintain both district- and school-level Unified Improvement Plans (UIP) within an online environment. Beginning in 2016-17, all districts and schools will be expected to use the online system -- the MS Word template will no longer be available. Contact the improvement planning office right away if the transition to the online system will create issues.
The system can be accessed through the CDE Identity Management Page. To begin, your District LAM will need to assign each user in the school/district to one role. The roles are either a District Administrator (can submit UIP and view and edit all school/district UIP), District User (can view and edit all school/district UIP), School Administrator (can submit UIP) or School User. Once assigned, users will select the Unified Improvement Planning Online System (UIP) - District & CDE Users tab for District Administrators, District Users, and CDE Users, and the Unified Improvement Planning Online System (UIP) - School Users for School Administrators and School Users.
The Improvement Planning team recommends utilizing these resources as you enter the UIP Online System. District users will have more administrative responsibility, while schools will enter directly into the UIP.
