Hawaiʻi State Improvement Grant (SIG)


The Hawaiʻi State Improvement Grant began in January 1999, with a focus upon assisting and supporting the Hawaiʻi State Department of Education's efforts to reach a number of training and information provision benchmarks under the Felix Consent Decree. The goals of the State Improvement Grant were: to increase statewide capacity to foster high standards and produce quality school-wide services and supports to children with disabilities; to improve service integration and student transitions supporting improved learning and performance by children with disabilities; to improve statewide capacity for accountability for measurement of student progress and results by addressing access and participation; and to increase capacity of parents of children with disabilities and others to participate in system change processes and the delivery of services for children with disabilities.
