Improving student achievement through enhanced educator effectiveness and increased organizational capacity in Central Wisconsin

Regional administrators, curriculum directors, university faculty and staff, and representatives from other organizations participated in the formation of the PK-18 Council for Central Wisconsin.
The model for the Council is based on the Education Trust (Washington, DC) and Wisconsin’s statewide PK-16 Council.
The PK-18 Council for Central Wisconsin enhances the collaboration between PK-12 school districts and institutions of higher education for the purpose of maximizing student potential.
This collaboration benefits area school districts and universities as they work together to address the challenges of improving student learning and the implementation of the Wisconsin Teacher Standards.
As schools face tougher economic times, the need to share ideas and strategies simply makes good sense.
