CESA #1 offers educators who completed their preparation outside of Wisconsin a way to meet the PI-34 statutory requirements of Conflict Resolution, Human Relations, and Environmental Education via texts, online resources, and examinations. These requirements must be met before the Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction (DPI) will remove the stipulation(s) from the educator’s license.
The Human Relations requirements are divided into four components and can be met via four examinations related to Native Americans in Wisconsin, Women’s History and Minority History, Philosophical and Psycholgical Bases of Attitued, and Culturally Relevant Teaching. Candidates may take all four examinations or any one of the above examinations, depending on their past training and their current needs. Candidates will receive materials for all examinations. After reading the materials, the candidates take open-book style written examinations and submit them electronically to CESA #1 where they are scored.
Conflict Resolution uses a series of online resources. After reading the information contained on the websites, candidates take an open-book style written exam, which they submit electronically to CESA #1 where it is scored.
Environmental Education uses WorldBook Online as the main resource. After researching the main topics of the exam, candidates take an open-book style written exam, which they submit electronically to CESA #1 where it is scored.
Upon successful completion, a certificate will be mailed to the candidate. This should be included with their DPI license application materials.
