Achievement Gap Reduction (AGR) Program
The AGR Program requires a participating school to create performance objectives, including reducing the achievement gap between low−income students in that school and students in the same grade and subject statewide.
Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports (PBIS)
PBIS is a joint effort between Milwaukee Public Schools Office of Family Services and the Milwaukee Teachers’ Education Association to effectively reduce classroom disruptions and student suspensions through a school-wide systematic tiered-intervention approach. Data shows that schools that implement PBIS with fidelity see decreases in disruptions and suspensions and increases in student achievement.
The High/Scope program offers a preschool to age eight curriculum model that provides appropriate activities for each stage of a child’s mental and physical growth. Teachers are trained to use the High/Scope method and the classroom is equipped to support the child’s learning skills acquired in preschool and elementary school.
