Description
 
The SIG program funds reforms in low performing schools. Congress provided $3.5 billion for SIG in FY 2009, and $1.6 billion in FY 2010-2012. SIG requirements changed significantly in 2010. Many schools receiving SIG funds must now use the funding for specific interventions, such as turning over certain school operations to an outside contractor. This report examined: (1) what aspects of SIG pose challenges for successful implementation; (2) how the Dept. of Educ. and state guidance and procedures for screening potential contractors and reviewing contractor performance compare with leading practices; and (3) to what extent Educs. tech. assist. and oversight activities are  supporting SIG implementation. Illus. A print on demand report.
