CESA #11 Parent Educator Liaison Project - Wisconsin Statewide Parent-Educator Initiative

Increasing educational involvement of parents of children with disabilities is the focus of a program funded by the Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction.  Through the Wisconsin Statewide Parent -Educator Initiative parent-educator liaisons, who themselves are parents of children with disabilities, are promoting positive partnerships between educators and parents of children and young adults with disabilities.  School districts have an opportunity to access these services to provide a broader range of support for families.  Services provided by the parent-educator liaisons are free to parents, educators, and school districts within CESA # 11.  To learn more about the CESA #11 project call 715-986-2020, ext. 2169.  For information about the statewide initiative call Toll-Free: 877-844-4925.

Our goal:
Assist parents and educators to work together to promote effective partnerships through positive communication, collaboration and training for the purpose of improving education for children and young adults with disabilities.



Connect families and educators with the community, statewide, and national agencies and organizations that provide services to parents and educators of children with disabilities.


Support the development of advisory committees and other activities which build parent-school partnerships. Provide one on one assistance to parents and educators.
