School Improvement Grant - Title I Awards

South Dakota Department of Education applied for a new School Improvement Grant to begin in the 2016-2017 school year. After the approval of the state application to USED, SD DOE held a competitive application process for LEAS that receive Title I, Part A funds and has one or more Priority or Focus schools.

The funds are available for the 2016-2017 school year, with two additional years contingent on federal funding. SD DOE applied and was granted the waiver, listed below, within the SIG application.
