Every Title School – including those that choose to use the Abbreviated Goals and Plans Template for the School Improvement Plan – must complete a Title I diagnostic.  Please note that the Title I diagnostics will not be assigned tasks in ASSIST.

You may also contact your assigned MDE regional support consultant for further assistance.
