District and School 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 report cards include data on multiple indicators for multiple years across four Priority Areas (Achievement, Growth, Target Group Outcomes, and On-track to Graduation). In addition, the report cards provide course and program participation information for grades 9-12 for public schools and districts. A school or district's overall accountability score places the school/district into one of five overall accountability ratings ranging from Significantly Exceeds Expectations to Fails to Meet Expectations. The 0-100 index is not "percent correct," but rather an overall score that is computed by weighing the various priority area sub-scores.
WI Information System for Education (WISEdash)
WISEdash Public Portal is a resource for parents, educators, students and community members interested in learning about school and student data published by the DPI. Student enrollment, attendance and results of certain tests (like Forward and ACT) are now available in WISEdash.
The National Weather Service (NWS) is predicting wind chills as low as 20 to 30 below zero overnight (between February 2 and February 3). NWS has issued a Wind Chill Advisory for our area beginning Thursday night, but has not indicated that they expect to issue a wind chill warning. As a reminder, the factors we consider to determine a school closure due to cold:
If a Wind Chill Warning is issued by the National Weather Service, schools will most likely be closed.
If a Wind Chill Watch or Advisory is issued, schools will most likely be open.
