Case Studies of Schools Receiving School Improvement Grants: Findings After the First Year of Implementation

The Institute of Education Sciences released a report examining the improvement process in a purposive sample of 35 case study schools receiving federal School Improvement Grants (SIG) over a three-year period (2010–11 to 2012–13 school years). Using site visits, teacher surveys, and fiscal data, the case studies describe the school contexts, the principals' leadership styles, the schools' improvement strategies and actions, the supports states and districts provide to the schools, school stakeholders' perceptions of improvement, and how SIG fits into the schools' change process.
