Bilingual and English Learner Education


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 multilingual students bring to school and work with districts to honor those assets while preparing students for future education and the workplace.
