WRCCS Micro-credential 
Come witness the launch of WRCCS Micro-credentials! Planning, opening, and sustaining a successful Wisconsin Charter school requires a ton of commitment, a bunch of learning, and a whole lot of community building. WRCCS Micro-credentials is an opportunity for charter schools to highlight specific strengths, skills, and merits of specific charter schools, elevate their profile in their community, and help other Wisconsin charter schools locate experts in the field. Come learn and gain access to artifacts of success as charter schools from around the state defend a WRCCS Micro-credential live.
