4 Wisconsin Administrative Code PI 34 4 PART 1 – Background The need for a new system of educator preparation and professional development emerged in the last decades of the 20 th century. Driving the movement for change were a number of beliefs:  that standards should guide what students know and are able to do, and  that greater accountability within a results-driven system would improve student learning.

10 Wisconsin Administrative Code PI PART 2 - A New System The foundation for the new system is the Wisconsin Educator Standards. There are 10 standards for teachers and 7 standards each for pupil services professionals and administrators. Knowledge of the 10 teacher standards is the first standard for both pupil services and administrator standards. The Standards require the demonstration of proficiency with regard to knowledge, skills and dispositions. The measure of what educators must know and do is no longer a list of courses and credits.
