SIG Cohort 2


SIG Home | Cohort 4 | Cohort 3 | Cohort 2 | Cohort 1

The School Improvement Grant (SIG), authorized under Section 1003(g) of Title I of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act of 1965, are grants to state educational agencies that are used to make competitive sub-grants to local educational agencies (LEAs) that demonstrate the greatest need for the funds and the strongest commitment to use the funds to provide adequate resources, in order to substantially raise the achievement of students in their lowest-performing schools. The California Department of Education (CDE) awarded school improvement sub-grants to Cohort 2 LEAs with persistently lowest-achieving Title I schools, and to LEAs with persistently lowest-achieving secondary schools that were eligible for, but did not receive, Title I funds.

Effective June 30, 2015, the SIG Cohort 2 program ended and is no longer administered by the CDE.

For more information regarding the SIG Cohort 2 program, please contact the School Improvement and Support Office by phone at 916-319-0833 or by email at SISO@cde.ca.gov.
