About

On July 1st, 2013, The Department of Public Instruction launched a new discretionary grant, The Transition Improvement Grant or TIG. The TIG combines two long-standing discretionary grants: The Wisconsin Statewide Transition Initiative (WSTI) and the Wisconsin Post High School Outcomes Survey (WPHSOS) into one dynamic, statewide IDEA discretionary grant. TIG is intended to provide universal, targeted and intensive supports at no cost to Wisconsin educators, transition partners, families and youth in the area of postsecondary transition to improve strategies that will positively affect the post school outcomes of students with disabilities.

The TIG is designed to strengthen and accelerate the transition process in our Wisconsin schools to increase high school graduation rates, decrease dropout rates, improve the quality of postsecondary transition plans (PTP), and develop strong career and college readiness among our students with disabilities through positive postschool outcomes. The TIG has developed several tools which incorporate reviewing data, strategic planning and implementation of transition practices to improve outcomes for students with disabilities. Through this process we also encourage partnerships with outside agency connections and attendance at County Communities on Transition (CCOT).

We look forward to a successful year in transition through collaborating and creating new relationships. Please take a moment to register for an account on this site. More information about TIG can be found on this site. Together, we can prepare all students to be a graduate, college and career ready!
