95% of Wisconsin school districts met or exceeded expectations in the latest state report cards

Wounaki did notice a slight drop in his 100-point score, which Shell attributed to new glitches and problems caused by the pandemic.

Madison has upgraded her rating for the 2018-19 academic year, going from a three-star rating – or meeting expectations – to a four-star rating, exceeding expectations on a five-star report card scale.

Across Wisconsin, 399 of 421 school districts have received three stars and above.

In the 2020/21 school year, 2,101 public schools and 376 elective schools received report cards. Of these schools, 1,781 met, exceeded, or significantly exceeded expectations. Out of a total of 199 public schools and 240 elective schools, there was not enough data available to generate report cards, according to a DPI press release.

When calculating report cards, DPI evaluates districts and schools in four priority areas – student achievement, academic growth, target group outcomes, and students on track and ready for higher education – based on metrics including graduation and attendance.

A new priority area, target group results, replaced the bridging of achievement gaps. DPI said the new priority area sheds additional light on students in schools with low test scores. According to DPI, this measure was designed to help focus support on the students who need it most and improve outcomes for all students.
