On this page...

All states were asked to identify their persistently lowest-achieving schools (PLAS) in order to receive School Improvement Grant (SIG) funding under Section 1003(g) of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act, Fiscal Year 2013, CFDA Number: 84.377A.

The purpose of this identification is to help bring resources to these schools so they may initiate or enhance efforts to improve student academic success.

The potential resources they may be able access include funding under the No Child Left Behind Title 1 School Improvement Grant.
