The Wisconsin Model Early Learning Standards Review Process Begins!
The Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction, in partnership with the Wisconsin Departments of Children and Families and Health Services, 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 will examine those comments on March 23, 2022, and recommend whether to revise or develop those standards. The State Superintendent determines whether to move forward with a revision process or continue with the current standards. If revision or development is determined to be needed, a state writing committee is then formed to work on those standards for all grade levels.
That draft is then made openly available for review to get feedback from the public, key stakeholders, educators, and the Legislature, with further review by the State Superintendent’s Academic Standards Review Council. The State Superintendent then determines the adoption of the standards.
