902 Portfolio

To move from the 902 with stipulations to the 902  renewable license, an applicant must have

  • completed a master's degree or the equivalent in an approved program (see UWW's 902 program)
  • obtain institutional endorsement

For the most up-to-date guidelines, see the Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction's information on licenses.

Organization

To demonstrate the knowledge, skills and dispositions in the 2010 ALA/AASL Standards for Initial Programs of School Librarians competencies, the Wisconsin DPI standards for  licensure as a library media specialist, and the National Board of Professional Teaching Standards for Library Media, the applicant will create a portfolio of selected artifacts with reflections that will be evaluated by the faculty. This will be evaluated by library media faculty at the end of all coursework and before granting the 902 license.  The possible artifacts are suggestions only. 

You can build this as an addition to the portfolio for the 902 with stipulations and the practicum portfolio or you can simply link to that portfolio to demonstrate the competencies for the entire 902 license. 

In addition to the artifacts demonstrating competencies in the course, include a reflection that articulates your philosophy of what it means to be a 21st century school librarian.
