• What are the DPI Report Cards?

    In Wisconsin, the Department of Public Instruction (DPI) state report cards are part of the state’s accountability system and are released during the fall of each school year. DPI releases report cards for all publicly funded schools and districts in Wisconsin.  The report cards are based on the previous school year’s data in four areas DPI calls “Priority Areas” (Achievement, Growth, Target Group Outcomes, and On-track to Graduation).

    DPI uses multiple data points in the “Priority Areas” to classify schools and districts on an “accountability rating” continuum. The DPI rating continuum determines whether a school or district is at, above, or below the targeted level of expectations. The DPI rating continuum places each publicly funded school and district's overall accountability score into one of five overall accountability ratings:

    We believe the state report cards offer PWSSD another data point that is helpful in identifying our areas of celebration and growth, which we can then use to inform our district and each school’s continuous improvement work. 

    Finally, PWSSD believes it is essential that we are transparent about our results. On this page, you will find links to our district’s report card and each school’s report card.  Please contact your building principal if you have any questions about the current district or school-level DPI Report Card data.
