Examines the change process in a diverse, purposive sample of schools receiving federal School Improvement Grants (SIGs) from 2010–11 to 2012–13. The report uses case studies to describe the characteristics of the schools, the decisions and strategies that the schools and their districts undertake, and the challenges they face in attempting to dramatically improve school performance.
