The SIG4 Proposal states, “Each district with one or more implementation site planning for turnaround must have a single community assessment team (CAT).” Does this apply to interventions other than Turnaround?

In this instance, the word “turnaround” refers to a comprehensive plan to dramatically improve the school, which is not limited to the Turnaround intervention offered under SIG.

All districts applying for SIG4 must have a CAT (or an equivalent districtwide group under a different name) that is representative of the demographics of the low-performing sites’ communities and is comprised of (but not limited to) parents, business representatives, educators, representatives of local governments, community activists, and the DA regional executive director (RED). For the purposes of SIG4 discussions, representatives of each site’s feeder patterns should also be included.
