Wisconsin ESEA Improving Teacher Quality Program (WITQ)
The University of Wisconsin System administers the Wisconsin ESEA Title II Improving Teacher Quality Program. This is a competitive grants program for increasing student achievement in the arts, civics and government, economics, English, foreign languages, geography, history, mathematics, reading or language arts, and science, by improving the teaching and principal quality at the K-12 level in Wisconsin's public and private schools. The funds will provide grants to eligible partnerships.
The funds for this program are part of a large block grant from the U.S. Department of Education which is awarded to each state. 2.5% of the total block grant is made to the Wisconsin Agency for Higher Education (University of Wisconsin System) to make competitive subgrants.
A 2012 priority for WITQ is for projects that propose to help PreK-12 teachers understand and implement the Common Core Standards that have been adopted by Wisconsin. Projects will begin March 2013.
