DPI Sets Meetings to Discuss Teacher Shortage Survey Results

In mid-April, the Department of Public Instruction (DPI) requested that Wisconsin school districts complete and return a survey about whether and to what extent they are experiencing teacher shortages are how they are addressing those issues.

Once the survey data have been collected, the DPI will hold regional meetings in each of the 12 state CESA regions throughout the latter half of May, 2016 to explore the results and gather feedback. (See schedule below.)

These half-day meetings are being convened to allow school board members and administrators, other school district personnel, parents, teacher preparation programs and other interested parties to review the survey results and other workforce data within their CESA district and to allow those who attend to offer suggestions to the DPI about what its strategic plan for addressing educator shortages should include.  These meetings are open to anyone who would like to attend. (Registration is requested.)
