The SIG Data Map is an interactive tool which helps you locate SIG schools and award amounts for the 2010-2011 school year.

SIG Databases

The SIG databases have information on all the SIG-related data you may be curious about, from information on award allocations, to SIG model selection, to demographic information on SIG-awarded schools.

The SIG database of Cohort 1 schools contains 15,518 SIG-eligible schools across 50 states, the District of Columbia, and the Bureau of Indian Education (BIE), including 1,247 SIG-awarded schools across 49 states.

The SIG database of cohort 2 schools contains 13,528 SIG-eligible schools across 45 states and the District of Columbia, including 600 SIG-awarded schools across 41 states and the District of Columbia. Among states with SIG award information for both cohorts, 81 percent of their schools that were eligible in cohort 2 had also been eligible for SIG in cohort 1.

SIG Reports

In May 2011, IES released the Department's first report on the revamped School Improvement Grant (SIG), called "Baseline Analyses of SIG Applications and SIG-Eligible and SIG-Awarded Schools." This report uses publicly-available data from State Education Agency (SEA) websites, SEA SIG applications, and the National Center for Education Statistics' Common Core of Data to provide initial information on SIG-related policies and practices that states intend to implement, and the characteristics of both SIG-eligible and SIG-awarded schools for Cohort 1.

In October 2012, IES released a follow-up report titled, “School Improvement Grants: Analyses of State Applications and Eligible and Awarded Schools” examining the characteristics of both SIG-eligible and SIG-awarded schools for Cohort 2.
