MADISON — The Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction today published updated student data that is now available on its WISEdash Public Portal.
The information published today includes 2022-23 certified enrollment data for public and private schools and certified data on graduation rates, attendance, discipline, and more for the 2021-22 school year.
For the Class of 2022, 90.3 percent of students completed high school with a regular diploma in four years. Students are assigned to a cohort year when they first enroll in a Wisconsin public high school, which for the Class of 2022 was students who started high school in the 2018-19 school year. The Wisconsin State Constitution guarantees students the right to a public education from the ages of 4 to 20.
Additionally, federal law requires educational services for students with disabilities, if needed, until the age of 21. Therefore, Wisconsin calculates five-, six-, and seven-year graduation rates to honor the additional time and effort of students who, due to illness or injury, personal or family events, or lifetime or temporary disabilities, need longer to complete their high school education.
Each year, all Wisconsin public school districts and independent charter schools collect information about their students, staff, and courses based on federal and state reporting requirements. These datasets are submitted to the DPI and are stored and linked in a data warehouse. The DPI’s WISEdash Public Portal uses dashboards, or visual collections of graphs and tables, to provide multi-year educational data about Wisconsin schools and students. Data on the portal are redacted and available by school, district, or state. Data can be displayed for multiple years and can also be grouped and filtered by a variety of demographics, including grade level, gender, race/ethnicity, economic status, disability, English proficiency, and migrant status.
