    The Peer Review and Mentoring Grant (PRMG) program provides support for public school districts, independent public charter schools, and Cooperative Educational Service Agencies (CESAs) to develop new or redesign ongoing peer review and mentoring support programs for initial educators in Wisconsin.

    In Wisconsin, nine (9) school districts have been identified as having the greatest need regarding the inequitable distribution of inexperienced initial educators or unqualified educators (Beloit, Green Bay, Janesville, Kenosha, Madison, Milwaukee, Racine, Waukesha, and West Allis-West Milwaukee). Applications which include these districts and focus on inequitable distribution of teachers will be given priority.

    Eligible uses of PRMG funds include (but are not limited to):

    • Provide support seminars based on district needs;
    • Provide resources for the establishment or support of professional learning communities;
    • Provide training to mentors; Provide training for administrators to serve as mentors for beginning administrators;
    • Provide training for pupil service professionals to serve as mentors for beginning pupil service professionals;
    • Provide peer review and mentoring to beginning teachers;
    • Provide mentoring support to unqualified (emergency license/permit holders) who are serving as teachers of record and working toward full licensure; and
    • Address an identified peer review and mentoring need that is demonstrated through student and/or staff data.
