 Title I, Section 1003 School Improvement Competitive Grants


 

Summary

The Title I Section 1003 School Improvement Competitive Grants provide financial resources (pending final State Board of Education approval) to Local Educational Agencies (LEAs) on behalf of Title I schools identified as Comprehensive Support and Improvement (CSI), Targeted Support and Improvement (TSI), and CSI Promise schools as defined by the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA). The Division of School and District Effectiveness at the Georgia Department of Education (GaDOE) will award competitive one-year, non-renewable grants to LEAs on behalf of identified schools to meet the needs outlined in their improvement plans.

There are two FY19 Title I Section 1003 School Improvement Competitive Grants:

Rural Resource Competitive Grants ​

The purpose of the Rural Resource Grant is to provide opportunities for identified schools to compete for funds to address Georgia’s Systems of Continuous Improvement, including coherent instruction, effective leadership, supportive learning environment and professional capacity.

The Rural Resource Grant provides additional one-time funds to help federally identified schools focus their efforts to increase student achievement. Successful proposals must demonstrate that the applicant will sustain the work outlined in the proposal.

Grants will be awarded for the 2019-2020 school year. The maximum grant period for a Rural Resource Grant is July 1, 2019 through September 30, 2020 subject to the continued availability of funds and the grantee meeting all outlined requirements. 

Eligibility

Eligible applicants must be LEAs serving Title I schools identified as CSI, TSI, or CSI Promise as defined by the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA). In addition, the LEA must be considered rural as defined by the Title V, Part B section of ESSA, which is the Rural Education Initiative. K-12 school districts with federally identified schools may also apply for a districtwide grant to enhance their efforts to support the identified schools within their district.
