Wisconsin Statewide Parent-Educator Initiative

Creating partnerships between families and educators for students with disabilities.

WSPEI is all about partnerships. WSPEI assists families and educators to find the resources that will help them build positive working relationships leading to shared decision making and positive outcomes for children’s learning. WSPEI services are free and confidential.

The Wisconsin Statewide Parent-Educator Initiative (WSPEI) supports:

  • Meaningful parent participation on IEP teams and other decision-making groups
  • Collaboration among general education, special education and other programs that support family engagement
  • Increased sharing of information among parents, schools, projects, organizations and agencies through networking meetings, conferences, person-to-person contact, and media
  • Collaboration with the twelve Regional Cooperative Education Service Agencies (CESAs)
  • Alignment with and access to state and federal initiatives

WSPEI is an organization that strives to provide the necessary resources and information in order to keep a positive partnership between parents and school districts. 

Connection to CESAS

Collaboration with all twelve Regional Cooperative Education Service Agencies (CESAs)

CESAs make it possible for schools, regardless of size, to work together to share staff and equipment, save money, and extend educational opportunity to all corners of the state and to all kinds of children. Each of the 12 CESAs serves the special and unique needs of schools and children in a particular area of Wisconsin. They do so without mandates, without levying taxes, and with virtually no direct state appropriations.
