Title I and School Support Team, part of the DPI's Division for Student and School Success, provides statewide leadership and technical assistance for several federal and state programs supporting schools that serve low-income students, schools federally identified for support and improvement, and particular groups of students whose living situations create educational challenges.
One of these programs is Title I, Part A of the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA), the largest federal grant program for elementary and secondary education, which serves schools across Wisconsin. The team also administers the state Achievement Gap Reduction (AGR) grant program and federal programs supporting migrant students (Title I, Part C), neglected and delinquent students (Title I, Part D), students in out-of-home care, and students experiencing homelessness (McKinney-Vento Act).
Beyond specific federal and state programs, the team collaborates within and beyond the DPI to advance educational equity, foster family and community engagement, and promote continuous improvement in schools and the educational system supporting them. The team also collaborates to help streamline federal grant processes for schools and districts, supporting consolidated monitoring for all ESSA titles, coordinating Title I efforts with similar efforts under other federal laws, and contributing to the development of the electronic WISEgrants management system.
