With approval of the state's ESSA plan, Wisconsin now has two accountability systems: a state system (Accountability Report Cards) and a federal system under ESSA (reporting format to be determined). There are similarities between the two systems but also important differences. We have created an Accountability Crosswalk to help explain these differences. Please note that the crosswalk is a DRAFT that includes the latest information but is subject to change. We will continue to refine the crosswalk over the coming months and update accordingly.
Each of the six largest districts and each of the CESAs has identified at least one Accountability Trainer who can assist schools and districts with accountability questions, report card interpretation and troubleshoot data issues related to the report cards.
