You play a critical role in students’ lives and we want to work closely with you to ensure qualified and deserving candidates are given this opportunity to further their education. We appreciate your support in identifying and encouraging students to apply for their local ITA program (Madison, Lac du Flambeau or Oneida). If asked by a student, we thank you for supporting them by submitting a recommendation letter and completing a Teacher or School Counselor Evaluation form. Your input will be kept confidential and will not be shared with the student or family. Thank you for helping students who will excel in the Information Technology Academy programs!

Teacher or School Counselor Evaluation

The evaluation form asks you to evaluate the student in relation to his or her peers based on your professional experience.

Teacher Recommendation Letter

This confidential letter should discuss the student’s goals, level of motivation, attitude, and academic support needs. If the student is particularly weak or strong in any of the areas listed in the evaluation form, please elaborate in your recommendation letter. In your letter, please also provide any additional information that will give us a more complete picture of the student.
