The Board of Control of Cooperative Educational Service Agency #1, by resolution, created The Institute @ CESA #1 to work with the 45 member school districts on a regional approach to transforming public education in Southeastern Wisconsin. Its mission is to establish personalized learning as the prevailing approach to educating youth. The Institute uses a unique regional action network approach to take advantage of multiple sites, simultaneously test a variety of strategies and models, and share research and learning to accelerate the effort.
A public education system that is student-centered and based on personalized learning will be more effective, dynamic, financially sustainable and better able to meet the needs of today's learners.
Our vision is clear:
We must get learning right the first time, every time.
