Using Regional Partnerships to Create Grow-Your-Own Programs in Wisconsin

Since 2017, the GTL Center, Midwest Comprehensive Center, and the Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction have collaborated to support the development of new educator career pathways in the state, particularly through “grow-your-own” programs. In partnership with local districts and educator preparation programs, three regional councils have been established across the state to strengthen educator talent pipelines in high-need urban and rural areas. Presenters will share new resources developed through the regional councils and reflect on lessons learned.
