For awarded districts that included the hiring of a continuous improvement director (CID) as a bonus strategy in the SIG4 Proposal (see Part II:B.2.), the CID or district representative who will be fulfilling the responsibilities of the CID Position Description must participate in the CLA starting in Year 1 of the grant with the intention of becoming a facilitator by Year 3.
