What are District and School Report Cards?
As part of the state accountability system, reflected in Wisconsin’s approved ESEA Flexibility Request, the Department of Public Instruction (DPI) has produced report cards for every district and school in Wisconsin. Report cards for Mauston Schools are available on the DPI website. These Report Cards provide data on multiple indicators for four priority areas:
Student Achievement – performance on the WKCE and WAA-SwD in reading and mathematics
Student Growth – improvement over time on the WKCE in reading and mathematics
Closing Gaps – progress of student subgroups in closing gaps in reading and mathematics performance and/or graduation rates
On-track and Postsecondary Readiness – performance on key indicators of readiness for graduation and postsecondary pursuits, whether college or career
Performance on three Student Engagement Indicators is also reported. These three indicators affect student success and school effectiveness.
Test Participation Rate, with a goal of 95 percent test participation for all students and each subgroup.
Absenteeism Rate, with a goal of 13 percent or less.
Dropout Rate, with a goal of six percent or less.
A district's or school’s Overall Accountability Score places the district or school into one of five Overall Accountability Ratings:
