Content Knowledge Proficiency

In order to receive an educator license in Wisconsin, the Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction requires applicants to demonstrate competency in the content knowledge of their specific license area.


In this experience, the candidate should teach/interact in multiple core components/content areas of the development level. Experience at both the early childhood and elementary levels (EC-MC)/elementary and content area (MC-EA) is required; current license experience will be considered.


Create a professional portfolio, 
aligned with the InTASC Standards, to document your growth in knowledge, skills and dispositions in the new developmental area.

You will be applying through the ELO for your license application.
