WASHINGTON (AP) - N.C. State University is among 12 recipients of awards from a U.S. Department of Education program.

U.S. Secretary of Education Arne Duncan announced the award of more than $20 million for new awards from the Turnaround School Leaders Program under the School Improvement Grants program. The program is designed to prepare leaders of reform efforts in the nation’s lowest-performing schools.

The Turnaround School Leaders Program supports projects to develop, or enhance, and implement a leadership pipeline that selects, prepares, places, supports and retains school leaders for SIG schools.

Recipients will develop systems at the district level to recruit and select prospective and current school leaders with the skills necessary to turn around a SIG or SIG-eligible school.

The program requires districts and schools to implement models for turning schools around.
