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 had 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.
Schoolwide programs are designed to generate high levels of academic achievement for all students, especially those most in need of additional support. All staff, resources, and classes are part of the schoowide program, and it serves all the children in school.
Schoolwide programs have great latitude in organizing operations and allocating funds. They do not have to identify eligible students or track funds separately. Schoolwide schools can improve systems and practices and embrace high-quality curricula, creating and implementing a comprehensive plan to ensure all students meet the state's challenging academic standards.
Marinette School District is currently a Title I Schoolwide District.
