SEATTLE -  State education officials have released a list of Washington schools eligible for federal school improvement dollars.

The 47 schools can apply for grants ranging from $50,000 to $2 million a year for three years. But they have to agree to follow one of the federal models for school improvement.

The schools made the list based on achievement test scores, graduation rates and attendance.

The federal models for turning around a struggling school include: closing the school and transferring the kids; or replacing the principal and at least half the staff; or replacing the principal and transforming the academic program.

The fourth option -- turning the school into a charter school -- is not available in Washington state.
