Program Description

The Wisconsin Statewide Parent Educator Initiative (WSPEI) is a DPI discretionary grant. It is a service for families, educators, and others interested in parent-educator partnerships for students with disabilities. WSPEI’s goal is to help parents and school districts find or create the resources that will help them build positive working relationships that lead to shared decision and making and successful education for all children. 

WSPEI assists school districts in implementing system wide family engagement assessments and long range planning. 

Other services include specialized trainings for families and educators, assistance with identifying and training a district family liaison, access to family friendly resources, coaching for families to engage in conversations with educators, and assistance with connecting students’ Individualized Education Program goals supports and accommodations to learning at home.
