District Report Card

 

The Department of Public Instruction (DPI) creates a School Report Card and District Report Card for every publicly funded school and district in the State. These report cards can be accessed online here: https://apps2.dpi.wi.gov/reportcards/. The Report Cards are intended to help all schools and districts utilize data on specific measures to target improvement efforts to ensure students are ready for the next educational step - including the next grade level, graduation, college, and careers. 
The current School Report Card, based on the 2015-2016 school year, looks a bit different than in the past due to changes required by the legislature. The overall idea for how report cards work is the same. At the foundation of the report cards are four priority areas. Schools and districts receive a score for each priority area: 

•    Student Achievement proficiency in English Language Arts (ELA) and mathematics on State assessments
•    Student Growth measured by year-to-year improvements in achievement
•    Closing Gaps in performance between specific student groups ( comparing English language learners, low-income students, students with disabilities, and members of a racial or an ethnic group with their peers)
•    On-Track and Postsecondary Readiness measurement using reliable predictors of high school graduation and potential post high school success

The priority area scores are then aggregated into an overall accountability score, from O to 100. This score is displayed in the top left comer of the School or District Report Card. It is important to note that the O to 100 accountability score is not a "percent correct" measurement. The score is primarily based on our performance last year, the 2015-2016 school year, across the four priority areas. 

Schools and districts are also evaluated on their level of student engagement - test participation rates, chronic absenteeism rates, and dropout rates when applicable. Based on its score, a school or district receives one of five rating categories, from Fails to Meet Expectations to Significantly Exceeds Expectations, as well as one to five stars. 

DPI has produced two versions of each Report Card: a quick one-pager labeled "School Report Card" and a lengthier, detailed version labeled, "School Report Card Detail". Both versions can be accessed online at https://apps2.dpi.wi.gov/reportcards/ along with resources that explain the report cards.
