Teaching and Learning Team

Teaching and Learning during COVID-19

The Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction (DPI) is focused on supporting schools and their families as schools continue planning for the remainder of the school year. Regardless of where schools are at in their planning processes for delivering learning for the remainder of the school year, the DPI recommends focusing on physical and emotional well-being, remote learning environments, feedback in lieu of grades, and equity and access in support and guidance.
