Title I Program
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, at a minimum, 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 to what extent Wisconsin students have met these standards. We will continue to provide Wisconsin students the highest quality education as we implement the requirements of the No Child Left Behind Act of 2001.
The Title I program provides supplemental services to children in Title I schools in the form of a Targeted Assistance program. The Targeted Assistance model provides direct service to students with the greatest need for supplemental services while Schoolwide programs deliver services to all students with a continued focus on students with the greatest need. The goal of the program is to provide supplemental instruction to improve the academic performance of students.
Parents are their child's first and most important teacher. Children learn language by interacting with their parents. In addition, parents influence their child's educational attitudes, habits, and interests. In Title I, parents and teachers build a close, cooperative partnership. Parents help to plan and participate in their child's learning and sign a Parent Compact.
