Bilingual and English Learner Education

English Learners and COVID-19

In response to the evolving public health concerns surrounding COVID-19, we have updated our guidance to support English Learners as of  August 4, 2020.

Bilingual and English Learner Program

The Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction supports school districts in educating students who are English learners (EL). We believe in the assets our bilingual students bring to school and work with districts to honor those assets while preparing students for future education and the workplace.

We host an annual Title III and Bilingual-Bicultural Fall Meeting. Check back for updates in summer 2020.
