Changes you can expect to see this school year:

  • School Report Cards - every public school in the state will receive a school report card which includes an "accountability score" based on several indicators of student performance. The report cards were publically released on Monday, October 22.
  • Increased Benchmarks on the WKCE - the benchmark scores needed for students to score "advanced" or "proficient" on the Wisconsin Knowledge and Concepts have increased. Beginning with the new school report cards, student performance in reading and math will be reported using new, increased benchmarks.

School Report Cards are now available on the DPI website - click here to view
