Since the release of our SIG Charts You Can Trust, we’ve updated our charts to include seven additional schools from the Bureau of Indian Education and Hawaii. The five BIE and two Hawaii SIG grantees all implemented the transformation model for the first cycle. Except for the Hawaii School for the Deaf and the Blind, all these schools are located in rural areas.
Our map has 850 schools from all 50 states, the District of Columbia, and the Bureau of Indian Education—a complete list of Tier I and Tier II SIG grantees. All the original links to the maps have been updated to include these new schools.
Also, make sure you check out this report from IES–it provides some in-depth details about the first cycle of grantees, including more information about Tier III schools, the capacity of states, and how states targeted these funds, and planned approaches for implementation. As states announce grantees over the summer, we’ll be tracking Round 2 of SIG!
*Use our interactive map to examine the data—select a state by checking the box next to state’s name on the right side of the map. (Deselect “All States” to individually pick each state i.e. Hawaii or Bureau of Indian Education.) Once the map has adjusted to show the state, dots for each SIG school will appear. When you select each dot, you will find a link to each school’s SIG application that details implementation and budget. To see only the schools that chose one of the four intervention models (i.e. only the restart schools), select the model and click on the highlight button in the left hand corner. To return to the original map, unclick the highlight button.
