Technology for Educational Achievement

​​​​​​​Technology for Educational Achievement (TEACH) is a program administered by the Wisconsin Department of Administration, Division of Enterprise Technology. TEACH subsidizes, through USAC's E-rate, much of the cost of the category 1 circuit to provide telecommunications access such as data lines to eligible schools, libraries, and educational institutions. TEACH does not subsidize a site's Internet Service Provider (ISP). ​TEACH Wisconsin was designed to advance education into the 21st Century through investment in educational technologies in Wisconsin through schools, cooperative educational service agencies (CESAs), libraries, and private and technical college systems. The program seeks to enable eligible institutions to take advantage of gains in technology and communications, to improve teaching and learning, and to provide students with the skills necessary to live and work in a complex world.
