2013-14 WI DPI: Family, School, Community Partnerships
The Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction VISTA project seeks to enhance the capacity of low-income schools and improve student achievement by developing practices that involve families, the school, and the community. The Department of Public Instruction recognizes that the main reason to create family-school-community partnerships is to help all youth succeed in school and in later life. Research tells us that when parents, teachers, students, and others view one another as partners in education, a caring community forms around students and begins its work. Under the guidelines of the project, the VISTA will perform the job using a comprehensive framework for establishing such partnerships. Members serve in low-income schools around the state. We anticipate position openings in Beloit, Janesville, Madison, Milwaukee and Racine. Please email a current resume to Your application will not be complete until we have a received a resume. POSITIONS ARE FILLED ON A ROLLING BASIS. If interested, July 16th starts are also available.
