Bilingual and English Learner Education

English Learners and COVID-19

The Department of Public Instruction (DPI) understands that guidance can change quickly as the public health emergency due to COVID-19 evolves. To keep you informed, the Teaching and Learning Team will update the English Learner FAQ. For questions, please contact Tamara Mouw, Director of Teaching and Learning, at

The Bilingual and English Learner program at 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.
