School Improvement Grant Awardees and Unfunded Applications
The West Virginia Department of Education is pleased to announce School Improvement Grant (SIG) awards following a rigorous review process. Twenty districts housed schools that met the criteria for persistently lowest performing schools. Seventeen districts elected to apply for grants that represented twenty seven schools. Grants were judged on the quality of the application, the need for the funding (priority was given to districts with Tier I and Tier II schools) and the capacity of the district to make substantive changes to improve the achievement of students. Districts were asked to give an oral presentation to the grant review committee before the final awardees were chosen. Feedback from the presentations and the grant reviewers was used by the districts to hone their final grant applications. After a second review, eight districts representing fifteen schools were approved for funding.
