Changes to the Wisconsin School Performance Report over Time

The 2006-07 School Year. Out-of-school suspensions, expulsions, and other removals were gathered through the Discipline Web Application rather than the SPR Collection.

The 2005-06 School Year. Under 2005 Wisconsin Act 62, annually by January 1, each school board shall notify the parent or guardian of each pupil the right to request a school and school district performance report. Annually, by May 1, each school board shall, upon request, distribute the report to the parent or guardian of each pupil. If the school district maintains an Internet site, the report shall be made available to the public at that site.

Additional information will need to be collected for state and federal reporting:

  1. Number of alcohol-related incidents resulting in suspensions at the school level. (Separate drug from alcohol-related incidents.)
  2. Number of alcohol-related incidents resulting in expulsions at the school level. (Separate drug from alcohol-related incidents.)
  3. Type of programs offered at the district level for students that were expelled. This item is only available as a data entry option and not for file upload.

The 2004-05 School Year. Attendance and retentions will no longer be collected as part of the School Performance Report data collection. These data are still part of the SPR, however, they will be collected through the Individual Student Enrollment System.

The 2003-04 School Year. Dropouts and graduates will no longer be collected on the School Performance Report. These 2003-2004 data are still part of the SPR but will not be collected through the aggregate SPR data collection; they will be collected in October 2004 through ISES (Individual Student Enrollment System). Beginning with the 2003-2004 reporting year, schools will be asked to submit SPR suspension and expulsion and district-wide expulsion data by June 30. Schools will be asked to submit the Special Education reports, Interim Alternative Educational Setting and IDEA Federal Discipline data by June 30. B2, Special Education Birth through age 2; E3, Special Education for age 3; E4, Special Education for age 4; E5, Special Education for age 5; C1, Title 1 preschool; and HD, Head Start will be reported as PK. Instead of counting all foreign languages as Advanced Coursework, only 3rd level and above are counted.

The 2001-02 School Year. Changes in federal reporting requirements for special education students affected the Federal Count report (formerly known as the unduplicated count). DPI simplified the October suspension report by eliminating the requirement to report suspensions by length (i.e., 10 days or less, more than 10 days).

The 2000-01 School Year. Changes in federal reporting requirements from the Office of Special Education Programs (OSEP) and changes in state law (1999 Wisconsin Act 9) necessitated changes in the data collection for the 2000-2001 school year. Changes in federal requirements occurred after the start of the school year.

The 1998-99 School Year. Significant changes to the School Performance Report affected reporting for 1998-99 and subsequent school years.
