Bilingual and English Learner Education

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.

Seal of Biliteracy Update

The Department of Public Instruction is currently revising the guidance document to the WI DPI Seal of Biliteracy for clarity. The criteria for the WI DPI Seal of Biliteracy remain the same. The DPI is accepting applications from districts to offer the WI DPI Seal of Biliteracy using the current guidance document and application form PI-9962.
