What are the School and District Report Cards?
As part of the state accountability system, the Department of Public Instruction (DPI) produces report cards for every publicly funded school and district in Wisconsin. These report cards include data on multiple indicators for multiple years across four Priority Areas (Achievement, Growth, Target Group Outcomes, and On-track to Graduation). In addition, the report cards provide course and program participation information for grades 9-12 for public schools and districts. A school or district's overall accountability score places the school/district into one of five overall accountability ratings:
For more detailed information about the creation and scoring for the report cards, see the Report Card Resources page.
What resources are available that explain the report cards?
In order to assist with building understanding and communicating about the school and district report cards, DPI has a number of resources available. Please see the Report Card Resources page, which is organized by year of accountability, for prior resources. Further details on Wisconsin’s state accountability system is available on the About the Report Cards page.
Who can I contact with other report card questions?
