Center on Innovation and Improvement
On-line Monitoring Tool


NH School Improvement Grants (1003g)

To provide a structure for monitoring the progress and performance of New Hampshire recipients of the School Improvement Grants (1003g), the NH Department of Education selected the Transformation Toolkit developed by the Center on Innovation & Improvement at the Academic Development Institute.  (http://www.centerii.org/sig/ )

The SIG Online Tool:

• Enables the NH DOE to set reporting dates and benchmarks for implementation indicators.

• Provides for detailed planning and tracking of implementation indicators.

• Provides links to resources relative to each implementation indicator.

• Generates a variety of reports on implementation and leading indicators.

• Allows for coaching from a partner and/or, LEA liaison.

• Provides Monitoring Review forms with NH DOE review comments.

• Includes data mining features that allow the NH DOE to scan data across its schools.

Transformation Model Requirements

Under the SIG Transformation model, the LEA is required to:

  • replace the principal with a highly capable principal to lead the transformation;
  • implement a rigorous staff evaluation and development system;
  • reward staff who increase student achievement and/or graduation rates.;
  • remove staff who have not improved after ample opportunity;
  • institute comprehensive instructional reform;
  •  increase learning time;
  • apply community-oriented school strategies; and
  • provide greater operational flexibility and support for the school.
