DPI SCHOOL REPORT CARDS & NOTICE OF EDUCATIONAL OPTIONS

As a result of the April 15, 2020, enactment of the 2019 Wisconsin Act 185, the coronavirus relief package, and the ESEA waiver granted by the Department of Education on March 23, all state and federal academic assessment requirements have officially been suspended or waived for 2019-20 and there will be no new ESSA identifications or state accountability report cards issued during the 2020-21 school year.

WHAT ARE THE SCHOOL AND DISTRICT REPORT CARDS?

As part of the state accountability system, the Department of Public Instruction (DPI) produces report cards for every publicly funded school and district in Wisconsin. These Accountability Report Cards include data on multiple indicators for multiple years across four Priority Areas (Student Achievement, Growth, Closing Gaps, and On-track and Post-secondary Success). In addition, given the impact on student success, the Accountability Report Cards also measure chronic absenteeism and dropout rates. A school or district’s Overall Accountability Score places the school/district into one of five Overall Accountability Ratings:

For more detailed information about the creation and scoring for the report cards, see the Accountability Resources page.
