Maximizing Instructional Practices for Students on

Alternate Academic Achievement Standards

2022-2023 School Year


Iris Jacobson and Michael Peacy, Education Consultants from the Department of Public Instruction (DPI) will be presenting with CESA 6. Iris has worked within the field of special education in public school settings as a classroom teacher, diagnostician, and program coordinator, primarily in a large urban district as well as a university instructor. Her focus has centered on academic assessment for students with IEPs, in particular for students taking the alternate assessment.  Michael works in the Office of Student Assessment at DPI.  His role oversees the Dynamic Learning Maps (DLM®) for the state of Wisconsin. 


We HIGHLY recommend that Special Education Teachers are accompanied by 1 or more of the following staff members: General Education Teacher, Instructional Coach, principal, District Assessment Coordinator, Director of Curriculum and Instruction, Director of Special Education or Pupil Services. This will increase capacity for leadership to coach and promote sustainable best instructional practices.

The in person workshop as well as the Communities of Practices will allow staff to collaborate and network with other districts, ask questions, discuss best practices and support the learning from previous workshops.
