What is Title I?

The stated purpose of Title I is to "ensure that all children have a fair, equal, and significant opportunity to obtain a high-quality education and reach proficiency on challenging State academic achievement standards and State academic assessments." To that end, Wisconsin has developed a comprehensive set of standards to measure what students need to know and be able to do, and an assessment system to determine whether Wisconsin students and schools have met these standards. We strive to provide Wisconsin students the highest quality education as we implement the requirements of the No Child Left Behind Act of 2001.

Comprehensive School Reform is an integral part of Title I. Consultants from the Department of Public Instruction and CESA Title I Network Coordinators assist districts and schools in the planning and development of applications to support implementation of programs that are based on scientific research and effective practices. The overarching goal is to build capacity and improve the academic achievement of all students in core academic subjects within participating schools.

The Statewide Title I Network provides timely advice, coaching, and support around evidence-based practices. It also provides resources and support for compliance, including monitoring guidance.
