The Waupun Area School District is focused on the success of each of the students we serve. There is a comprehensive and continuously improving academic program in place to meet the needs of diverse learners. This includes a comprehensive focus on literacy and mathematics to ensure high leverage instructional practices are being implemented in our classrooms so our learners have the opportunity to achieve at high levels, effective differentiation strategies to meet the needs of our diverse learners, and targeted career readiness pathways ensuring students are prepared for the career of their choice. These are just a few highlights of our efforts.
Title I of Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSE/ESEA) is a federal funding program designed to close achievement gaps and ensure that all children have a fair, equal, and significant opportunity to obtain a high-quality education. Part A, the largest part of the program, allocates funding to districts and other local educational agencies (LEAs) according to a formula based on numbers/percentages of children from low-income families.
