School Information

Per Pupil Expenditures



This ESSA: About the Data page, managed by the Office of Educational Accountability (OEA), covers all federal reporting information requirements of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA) as amended by the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA). ESSA requires each state to produce a state “report card” and DPI meets this requirement through the information provided on the WISEdash ESSA Overview page.

Meeting this federal requirement is different from Wisconsin’s state requirement for school and district report cards (as required in state statute 115.385). DPI typically uses the term "report cards" only to refer to the Wisconsin School and District Report Cards, which pre-date ESSA requirements.

More information about the differences between the federal and state accountability systems can be found via the Crosswalk of Accountability in Wisconsin resource and the report card resources webpage.
