You play a critical role in students’ lives and we want to work closely with you to ensure qualified and deserving candidates have 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 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 and Recommendation Form
The evaluation form has an evaluation section on the first page and space for a recommendation on the second page. The evaluation asks you to share information about the student in relation to the student’s peers based on your professional experience.
The evaluation and the recommendation are confidential. The recommendation should discuss the student’s goals, level of motivation, attitude, and academic support needs. In the recommendation section of the form, please elaborate if the student is particularly weak or strong in any areas listed in the evaluation form and please provide any additional information that will give us a more complete picture of the student.
The 2018 ITA Teacher or School Counselor Evaluation and Recommendation Form is available for download here.
How to Submit Your Teacher or Counselor Evaluation and Recommendation Form
The deadline for 2018 ITA applications is 5:00 p.m. on March 9, 2018.
ITA strongly encourages counselors to upload application materials to the confidential online submission folder. Below are the steps for submission:
- Students submit PDF application materials to a school counselor.
- School counselors request access to ITA’s confidential online submission folder by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or calling (608) 265-3145.
- School counselors create one PDF per student. If a counselor received additional application materials from the student, the counselor should combine the student materials with the Teacher/Counselor Evaluation and Recommendation Form into one PDF for the student.
- Counselors upload PDFs of students’ applications to ITA’s confidential online submission folder.
If submitting materials to ITA’s confidential online submission folder is not possible, applicants and school counselors may fax student application materials to ITA at (608) 265-6453 or mail their application to ITA at 1210 W. Dayton Street, Madison, WI 53706.
