The Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction (DPI) has just released the highly anticipated report cards for the 2022-2023 school year. These report cards provide an assessment of various factors such as achievement, growth, outcomes for target groups, and on-track to graduation rates for schools and districts across the state.
Each school and district is given a grade ranging from one star, which indicates that the school fails to meet expectations, to five stars, which signifies that the school significantly exceeds expectations. These report cards are based on up to three years of data. However, what sets this year’s report cards apart is that they do not include pre-pandemic achievement data. This decision reflects the unique circumstances that schools have faced over the past couple of years.
Among the largest school districts in the area, here are some of the scores that they received on the report cards: De Pere (81.9, exceeds few expectations), Green Bay (58.2, meets expectations), Appleton (65, meets expectations), Oshkosh (68.4, meets expectations), and Manitowoc (57, meets few expectations). These scores provide a snapshot of the performance of these districts and offer insight into how they have fared during the 2022-2023 school year.
It is worth noting that the DPI cautions against interpreting these scores as traditional letter grades. They emphasize the complexity of the criteria that is used to determine these grades and urge readers to consider the full report for a more comprehensive understanding.
For those interested in delving deeper into the report and gaining a more comprehensive understanding of how schools and districts in Wisconsin performed, the full report is available. Visit the DPI website or access the report directly for further information on individual schools and districts.
