Every voter in Wisconsin will have the opportunity to vote for Superintendent of Public Instruction on April 6.
The Superintendent of Public Instruction oversees the implementation of state and federal education policy in all types of publicly funded schools – traditional district, public charter, and private Choice – across the state. This includes overseeing millions of dollars in public funding. The office of Superintendent is nonpartisan and is elected every four years in a statewide election.
Primary responsibilities include:
The current Superintendent is Carolyn Stanford Taylor. Gov. Tony Evers named Taylor as his replacement to the post in 2018, when he was elected governor.
Superintendent Taylor is Wisconsin's first Black state superintendent.
Since Taylor is not running in the election, this is the first open race for the position since 2009.
Many news outlets have published profiles which include the candidates' views on important issues like school reopening, closing opportunity gaps facing Wisconsin's Black and Hispanic/Latino youth, increasing teacher diversity, public charter schools, and private school vouchers. Here's a good set of profiles of the candidates for state superintendent, as well as the other races on Tuesday's ballot. There are other profiles out there, too.
In addition, the candidates have participated in forums where they've discussed their views on key issues. Here's a recent one co-moderated by City Forward Collective and Wisconsin Policy Forum. Don't have time to watch? This article captures some of the conversation.

Here is how we need your support to ensure we all stay healthy and safe:
Parents should check that their child is not exhibiting symptoms or has had contact with anyone who has ***d positive for COVID prior to coming to school. Please note that all staff is also required to complete screening/temperature checks. If your scholar or a family member has symptoms or has had contact as of or after March 15th. We ask that you complete the COVID Reporting Form. If your child has traveled by plane, we also ask that you complete the COVID Reporting Form. Parents will be directed to pull up in front of the school between 7:45-8:10AM. Scholars will be temperature checked prior to leaving their car. Walkers will be screened upon arrival and parents will be contacted to pick their scholar up if they do not pass screening procedures. Scholars will need to be in their assigned classroom by 8:10AM.
We will require scholars to wear masks at all times and ask that scholars bring an extra mask if they would like to change their mask mid day.
In order to ensure social distancing, we will have no more than 16 scholars in a classroom. For scholars that will be in bigger groups, we will use the Commons and ensure we follow social distancing precautions. Groups in the Commons will not exceed 30 students. Breakfast and lunch will be served in the classroom.
If a student exhibits symptoms, they will be moved to quarantine and a parent will be requested to pick them up.
Middle school scholars will not be dismissed until 3:30PM on Tuesday, Thursday and Friday and 11:30AM on Wednesday. Parents will be directed to park in the new parking lot, staff parking lot, or on the street. If you are using Pik my Kid for your younger child, we ask that you park in a lot or the street afterwards to wait for your middle school scholar. Please do not come to the main entrance to take them to your vehicle. We will escort them directly to you on these testing days. If your scholar is walking, please give written consent via e-mail to email@example.com Note: We will not be able to dismiss scholars early as we do not want to disrupt the testing environment.
Please note that Wednesday testing will be done by 11:30. Please make arrangements to pick up your middle school scholar at 11:30. They will be leaving the building at that time with bag lunches.
Scholars will not be required to wear uniforms; however, we do expect that scholars will be dressed appropriately (no midriff/sleeveless shirts/ripped pants/hats/inappropriate slogans).
As we will need several staff members present to supervise your scholars, we will not offer virtual special classes (Bible, Forensics, Art, Music, Spanish, or Gym/PE). During this time, your scholars should work on ALEKs or projects and arrive at their next scheduled class on time.
Enclosed is an Informational Brochure for Families which gives more information about the assessment including its purpose, what scores will be provided, and how the scores will be used.
Please encourage your son or daughter to take the test seriously and do the best they can. If you have any additional questions, please contact me at (414) 810-1380 or firstname.lastname@example.org
Thank you for your continued support!
