DPI Strategic Plan Engagement Sessions: Coming to a Community (or Computer) Near You!

Tuesday, December 5, 2023

Since we first kicked off the DPI five-year strategic planning process in the spring of 2023, the DPI has scheduled and held public engagement sessions both online and in communities in the north of our state.

We’ve been to Minocqua, Weston, Eau Claire, Onalaska, Washburn, and tonight (Dec. 5), we’ll be in Spooner. For the remainder of December, we will visit Crivitz, as well as hold an virtual online engagement session to round out the month. Visit the strategic planning community engagement session page for more information and to sign up to attend.

Starting in January 2024, we will expand our visits to the rest of the state, making sure that as many folks as possible have an engagement session that is easily accessible by hosting events in and near Oshkosh, Madison, Dodgeville, Kenosha, Janesville, and Milwaukee.

Childcare is available at all in-person sessions! If you require ASL interpretation services or translation into Hmong or Spanish in order to take part, please let us know. We endeavor to make these sessions as accessible as possible, working with local school boards and resources to leverage inclusive resources.

The Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction is developing a strategic plan that is rooted in equity to ensure that the strategies and measurements of progress align with DPI's mission and vision. We are committed to transparency and inclusivity, actively involving both DPI colleagues and external stakeholders in a collaborative process.

“I firmly believe that the people most impacted by a policy should play a part in crafting it, and that is why we are reaching out to communities across Wisconsin. Every person who lives in this state is impacted by our public schools, and I look forward to hearing from our education partners, the residents of our school districts, community and business leaders, and even our students, all of whom have important perspectives to learn from when it comes to shaping the work of our department."

- Jill Underly, PhD, State Superintendent of Public Education
