Center for Education Policy releases report on school grant use
| Feb 25, 2011
Changes in requirements for the federal School Improvement Grant (SIG) program are having the intended effect of channeling more resources to low-performing high schools, according to Early State Implementation of Title I School Improvement Grants under the Recovery Act, a report released February 23 by the Center on Education Policy (CEP).
CEP’s analysis – which is based on anonymous results from two state surveys – also found that while states are using the funds to expand technical assistance to low-performing schools, some respondents reported that the SIG program could be better targeted to help schools that most need assistance.
