Wisconsin Standards for English Language Arts

ELA Standards Review Process

The Wisconsin's Standards for English Language Arts review and revision process went from summer 2019 to summer 2020, concluding with the State Superintendent's adoption of the revised standards.

The ELA process is summarized here and explains the status of standards for English language arts in other states.

Specific information about the DPI's transparent and comprehensive academic standards review process can be found on the standards page. The process began with a Notice of Intent to review and a public comment period in summer 2019. The State Superintendent’s Academic Standards Review Council (SSASRC) examined those comments and recommended revising. The State Superintendent decided to move forward with the revision process. The draft revised standards were reviewed by the public, the SSASRC, and finally the State Superintendent.
