Ellen Bartling, Superintendent of the Lomira School District, was visited on August 12, 2011. The visit focused on the following:
- Wisconsin Rural Schools Alliance is an organization that strives to meet the needs of rural schools in the state.
- The course options for teachers who want to be cooperating teachers for the supervision of student teachers. The course options are online, hybrid and face to face.
- The Add On Licensure Program is a program that extends the licensure of teachers. Teachers need district administration involvement before they can take part in it to gain further licensing in Wisconsin.
- Students need to graduate from Elementary Education with ESL, Special Education or other areas to improve their chances of getting jobs. Physical Education students need Health or Adapted physical Education.
- A new Principal Licensure Program will be offered from COEHS. The program will begin in the fall of 2011.
- The COEHS/K12 Fox Valley Schools Advisory Council serves as a connection between COEHS and area school districts.
- The new expansion of the Special Education Programs and how it will help rural Districts have more candidates for Special education positions. The program will be centered in the Plymouth School District.
- The Educational Leadership Program offers flexibility in designing program for individuals or school districts.
