School Improvement Grant

Note: The due date for the request for applications has passed. This page is for reference and administration of funding.

The School Improvement Grant (SIG) provides funding to help local educational agencies (LEAs) address the needs of schools in improvement, corrective action, and restructuring to improve student achievement. In conjunction with funds reserved under Section 1003(a) of Title I of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA), SIGs are to be used to leverage change and improve technical assistance under sections 1116 and 1117 of Title I, Part A of the ESEA through LEAs targeting activities toward measurable outcomes as described on this page. 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.
