North Carolina's Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) State Plan identifies schools for targeted support and improvement when schools have student subgroups that are underperforming. For 2018-2019, any school with one or more subgroups receiving a subgroup letter grade score at or below the highest performing Comprehensive Support and Improvement Low Performing (CSI-LP) school's School Performance Grade score, based on the 2017-18 data, is identified as Targeted Support and Improvement-Additional Targeted Support (TSI-AT) schools.
For the 2018-19 identification, 1634 NC schools are TSI-AT. TSI-AT schools receive support from the local school district specifically focused on improving the performance of the identified subgroup(s). Identified schools are eligible to exit TSI-AT status at the end of the 2020-2021 school year by having either a three-year average growth index greater than 1.0 or by meeting the interim progress targets in reading and math for the identified subgroups. Title 1 served schools unable to exit TSI-AT at the end of the 2020-21 school year will become Comprehensive Support and Improvement (CSI) schools.

North Carolina's Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) State Plan identifies two sets of schools for comprehensive support and improvement which occurs every three years:
CSI Low Performing (CSI-LP) schools are those schools whose School Performance Grade are in the bottom five percent of all Title 1 served schools. For the 2018-19 identification, using 2017-18 data, 77 NC schools are identified.
CSI Low Graduation Rate (CSI-LG) schools are any schools with a four-year cohort graduation rate lower than 66.7% regardless of Title 1 status. For the 2018-19 identification, using 2017-18 data, 42 schools are identified. CSI-LG schools are eligible to be identified as CSI-LP schools.
Schools with a CSI identification receive state level support from the Federal Program Monitoring and Support Division. CSI schools are eligible to exit the CSI identification at the end of the 2021-22 school year if they meet the required exit criteria.
