Evers Names Task Force to Address Achievement Gap

Task force charged with finding classroom-centered best practices to reduce achievement gap

April 2, 2014

State Superintendent Tony Evers named 17 teachers and principals to the Promoting Excellence for All: State Superintendent's Task Force on Wisconsin Achievement Gap. Educators were selected from public, charter, and choice schools all over Wisconsin that have shown increased student academic achievement.

“The work of this task force is extremely important to me because it is directly connected to Agenda 2017, my vision for all of Wisconsin’s students to graduate college and career ready,” Evers said. “The task force and its work are my No. 1 priority this spring.”

According a press release from the Department of Public Instruction, the group will examine "proactive instructional strategies and resources for Wisconsin educators to use to close achievement gaps in their schools and districts and to recommend local school board policy changes that can support efforts to close the achievement gaps in the state."

The task force will also release resources for educators including instructional strategies to close the achievement gap along with a report on the task force's findings.
