Wisconsin Private School Ombudsman

Each state must identify an Ombudsman to work with private schools and public school districts to monitor and enforce equitable services requirements under both Title I and Title VIII of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA sections 1117(a)(3)(B) and 8501(a)(3)(B)).

The Department of Public Instruction (DPI) has contracted with WCRIS to be Wisconsin’s ombudsman. More information from the DPI can be found here.

You can find information about the most recent reauthorization of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA) called the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) below. Additionally, helpful links to resources are posted in the sidebar.
