The Wisconsin Model Early Learning Standards Review Process 

The Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction DPI), in partnership with the Wisconsin Departments of Children and Families (DCF) and Health Services (DHS), has started a review of the Wisconsin Model Early Learning Standards. The Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction has a transparent and comprehensive process for reviewing and revising the Wisconsin Model Early Learning Standards. The process began with a Notice of Intent to Review  and a comment period which began on January 24, 2022 and ended on March 2, 2022.

The State Superintendent’s Academic Standards Review Council examined those comments on March 23, 2022, and recommended to revise the standards. Currently, leadership from DPI, DCF and DHS are determining the next steps in the review process for the standards. These will be reflective of the collaborative nature of the Wisconsin Model Early Learning Standards.
