This website includes a set of useful tools for anyone who is currently serving, or wants to serve, on a decision-making group.  This can include parents, students, educators, administrators, and community members.  It was researched, developed, and written collaboratively by a broad stakeholder group of statewide agencies, school representatives and family members across Wisconsin.

These tools, including on-line training modules for individuals and a guidebook for use in training groups, were developed to address the need to support families in serving on decision-making groups, and the information and structure can be used to support anyone serving on those groups.  It is a great introduction for some, a welcome refresher for others, and a resource for all, including experts and mentors, so everyone can come to the table ready to serve.  The sections to the Guidebook are:

State Personnel Development Grant (2013). WI Department of Public Instruction, Madison, WI,  Wisconsin Family Assistance Center for Education, Training, and Support (WI FACETS).
