Education funds available
U.S. Secretary of Education Arne Duncan announced Ohio will receive $19.5 million to turn around its persistently lowest achieving schools through the School Improvement Grants program. The funds are part of $546 million available to states for the SIG program in fiscal year 2010. In fiscal year 2009, states received a total of $3.5 billion for the SIG program.
"When a school performs in the bottom 5 percent of the state and isn't showing signs of progress or has a graduation rate below 60 percent over a number of years, something dramatic needs to be done," Duncan said in a release. "Turning around our lowest-achieving schools is difficult for everyone but it is critical that we show the courage to do the right thing by kids."
The $19.5 million made available to Ohio is being distributed by formula to the state and then is to be competed out by the state to school districts.
School districts are to apply to the state for the funds in the spring. When a school district applies, it must indicate it will implement one of four school intervention models in each of its persistently lowest-achieving schools for which it receives SIG funds, based on school needs.
All Title 1 schools in school improvement that are not in Tier 1, which includes the persistently lowest performing schools, are put into Tier 3 for the purpose of using SIG funds. All Title 1 schools that are identified in school improvement and as a dropout recovery school are eligible for Tier 3 SIG funds.
Local schools in Tier 3 are Mohawk Elementary School and Fostoria City Schools' Field and Riley elementary schools. Field no longer is used.
