Resources for Students, Educators, Caregivers & Families

Regardless of where learning is happening--in-person, physically distanced, or virtual--the Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction’s (DPI) vision for student learning remains unchanged. We want all learners in Wisconsin to be engaging with the skills, knowledge, and habits that will support them in graduating from high school academically prepared and socially and emotionally competent. In an effort to promote meaningful learning experiences in the gifted domains of creativity and leadership, linked are the Creativity and Leadership infographics with ideas and questions for how to promote learning in those two areas.
