School Report Cards 2011-12

In the first year of School Report Card release, the Sheboygan Area School District provided an overview of information.

As part of a larger school accountability system in Wisconsin, each public school will receive a report card with an accountability index score from 0-100. The report cards will be based on multiple factors:

  • Student achievement in reading and mathematics on state assessments
  • Student growth, measured by year-to-year improvements in achievement
  • Closing gaps in performance between specific student groups (comparing English language learners, low-income students, students with disabilities, and members of racial or ethnic group with their peers)
  • On-track to graduation/postsecondary readiness, using reliable predictors of high school graduation and postsecondary success

The accountability system applies to all public schools, including charter schools, and takes effect with new school report cards released in October 2012 that will be based on 2011-12 student performance.

It’s important to note that the 0 to 100 accountability index score is not a “percent correct” measurement, similar to a score a child might earn on a test in school. Instead, in combination with other school data, the accountability index score will help our school staff determine what areas we do well in and where we need improvement.  The goal is to help every student in our school succeed, graduate, and be ready to pursue further education and a career.
