Attend a Mid-Year Reflection Webinar

The Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction Literacy and Mathematics Team is hosting a mid-year reflection webinar, Thursday, January 28, 2021, 9:00 a.m.-10:30 a.m. CST. Traditionally, a mid-year reflection offers teachers and leaders the chance to step back, gather information, and plan in a deliberate way for the rest of the year. This year, it is more important than ever to carve out time to reflect on successes, challenges, and opportunities.

The DPI is collaborating with Instruction Partners, a nonprofit organization that provides support to states, educational service districts, and school systems, through equitable instruction practices, high-quality instructional materials, and continuous improvement, to host this no-cost event for educational leaders statewide.

Using the Wisconsin Mid-Year Reflections and Resources as a grounding document, Wisconsin education leaders will:

  • take stock of the year

  • explore evidence-based resources

  • learn from, and with, colleagues across Wisconsin

Attendance is limited—reserve your space today!


Coming Spring 2021: Community of Practice

This spring and summer, the DPI will host a Community of Practice to help districts reimagine the 2021–22 school year. This community of practice will support district leaders in progress monitoring instructional and operational plans and adjusting based on data and lessons learned from peers. This will require developing school plans (structures, schedule, roles) for accelerating learning and intervention structures for the 2021–22 school year, including curricular materials and a scope and sequence for each content area and grade.

Topics addressed:

  • supporting unfinished learning

  • analyzing assessment and supporting intervention

  • facilitating teacher training

  • supporting instructional coaches

  • and accelerating student learning

The series—with sessions on May 13, May 27, June 10, and June 24—will be 90-minutes long. Small district teams will learn and plan with other Wisconsin district teams. There are limited spaces for this opportunity.

More information will be available soon. To learn more, contact Bianca Williams Griffin at
