Wisconsin District and School Report Cards:
As you may know, the Department of Public Instruction (DPI) is required by state statute (Wis. Stat. 115.385) to generate a school report card and district report card for every publicly funded school and district in the state. The report cards are intended to help schools and districts use performance data to celebrate successes and improve their efforts to prepare students for their futures. The school report card is one resource we use to reflect on our strengths and areas for improvement.
Each school or district receives one of five rating categories from Fails to Meet Expectations to Significantly Exceeds Expectations based on scores in the areas of Achievement, Growth, Target Group Outcomes, and On-Track to Graduation, For the ‘22-’23 school year, our district Meets Expectations. We are working towards continuous improvement and to exceed the expectations the state has set forth, and to exceed the Stoughton community’s expectations as well. One additional note is that the district and school report cards are primarily based on last year’s performance during the 2022-23 school year, yet multiple years of data impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic are used throughout the report card. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, DPI encourages caution when interpreting scores and ratings on the 2022-23 report cards.
We are sharing our results with you because they help illuminate some of our successes and help pinpoint areas of focus in our school and district. However, as DPI emphasizes, these report cards are just one source of information about our school. To address questions and concerns about district and school report cards or any aspect of curriculum and instruction, please contact Kate Ahlgren, Director of Instruction at Kate.Ahlgren@stoughton.k12.wi.us. Our report cards for the 2022-2023 school year are shared below.
