The No Child Left Behind (NCLB) Act of 2001 Section 1116(c)(7)(A) requires that LEAs identified for PI shall, not later than three months after being identified, develop or revise an LEA Plan, in consultation with parents, school staff, and others. Rather than rewrite the existing LEA Plan, districts use an addendum to address their needs, goals, strategies, actions, professional development, etc.
