Technology for Educational Achievement (TEACH) is a program of the Wisconsin Department of Administration, Division of Enterprise Technology. TEACH subsidizes much of the cost to provide telecommunications access (e.g. data lines and video links) to eligible educational agencies. The TEACH Program is authorized under Chapter 16, Subchapter IX of the Wisconsin Statutes.
The Department of Administration works in cooperation with school districts, cooperative educational service agencies, charter schools, libraries, secured juvenile correctional facilities, private colleges, tribal colleges, the technical college system board, and the board of regents of the University of Wisconsin System to promote the efficient, cost-effective procurement, installation, and maintenance of educational technology.
TEACH services began in October 1997. The program is funded through the State Universal Service Fund and distributes approximately $22 million annually.
