Streamlined Consolidated LEA Improvement Plan (S-CLIP) Survey
- 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.
- Atlanta Public Schools completed a comprehensive needs assessment that identified student achievement and retention of effective teachers and leaders as areas for improvement. The CLIP addresses the areas for improvement and includes goals and action steps that align with APS' 2020-2025 strategic plan, equity commitments, and strategic initiatives.

The ARP Act of 2021 provided our school district with significant funding for various educational initiatives. We are seeking your insights to ensure that these funds are allocated in ways that align with our community's priorities and expectations. Your feedback will assist us in making informed decisions that positively impact our students' learning experiences.
Thank you for sharing your perspective and engaging us on this critical topic. Your input is valuable and will be used to finalize our plan.
During the 2021-2022 school year, Atlanta Public Schools (APS) requested feedback on the development of its plan to support student learning with the funds received through the American Rescue Plan Act (ARP) of 2021. Please review the PowerPoint presentation on this page for an overview of the district's plan for ARP funds.
President Biden signed the American Rescue Plan Act (ARP) of 2021 into law on March 11, 2021. The law provides $1.9 trillion in COVID-19 relief, including roughly $125 billion in allocations for the K-12 education system. APS was slated to receive just over $200 million to help address the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on APS students. ARP funds have been provided to school districts for the following:
- Provide for a safe return to in-person instruction consistent with CDC guidance on reopening schools.
- Address learning loss through evidence-based interventions.
- Target students who are underserved or disproportionately impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic.
- Maintain continuity of services for students and staff, including social-emotional learning, mental health, student health, and food services.
The district planned to utilize that funding to address several critical areas, including academic recovery and intervention, social-emotional learning, and student and staff health and well-being.
