Title I -- Improving the Academic Achievement of the Disadvantaged

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.
