PIE high schools enter into a contractual agreement with the university to offer university courses and hire teachers who have master's degrees and at least 18 graduate credits in the content area related to each college-level PIE class. These teachers must be approved by the academic department at the university and work closely with a university liaison professor.
UW-Whitewater provides support for teachers with a master’s degree not specifically related to the content area by providing on-line graduate courses at no charge for participating instructors. Teachers will need at least 18 graduate credits in the subject area. For example, teachers with a masters degree in curriculum and instruction could be accepted as PIE instructors for computer science provided that they enroll and complete graduate courses in computer science.
