Technology for Educational Achievement in Wisconsin Board. Informational Paper No. 34.
In an effort to address concerns in the educational community related to the use and costs of information and communications technology, the Technology for Educational Achievement in Wisconsin (TEACH) Board was created in 1997. The TEACH Board administers the distribution of grants under the technology block grant and technology training and technical assistance grant programs. The Board also coordinates with the Department of Administration (DOA) and the Public Service Commission to operate a telecommunications access program. In addition, the Board coordinates with DOA to provide infrastructure loans, technology purchasing services, technical assistance, and educational technology services, equipment, and training to eligible educational institutions. The TEACH Board was also responsible for closing out the pioneering partners education technology grant and loan program. Institutions served by Board programs include school districts, private schools, cooperative education service agencies, technical colleges, private colleges, the University of Wisconsin system, and public libraries. This paper discusses the responsibilities of the TEACH Board and the programs that it administers and coordinates. (AEF)
