School Improvement Grants 1003(g)

School Improvement Grants (SIG) provide funding to help local educational agencies (LEAs) address the needs of priority and focus schools to improve student achievement. SIG funds are to be used to leverage change and improve technical assistance through LEAs targeting activities towards measurable outcomes. Expected results from the use of these funds include improving student proficiency, increasing the numbers of schools that make adequate yearly progress, using data to inform decisions, and creating a system of continuous feedback and improvement.

This program provides financial assistance to LEAs with "persistently lowest-achieving" schools to substantially raise student achievement in those schools and to enable the schools to make Adequate Yearly Progress.

This page documents the grants that were funded and not funded. The grant applications, along with the scoring rubrics, are included on this page.
