Longfellow Elementary - School Report Card Letter to Parents
November 15, 2022
Dear Parents and Guardians,
We have had a wonderful fall at Longfellow Elementary School! We are excited to continue to see our growth through the remainder of the school year. As we reflect on our school's strengths and areas for growth, the school report card is one resource we use.
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. These public report cards can be found online at: http://dpi.wi.gov/accountability/report-cards.
The current school report card is primarily based on last year’s performance during the 2021-22 school year. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, DPI encourages caution when interpreting scores and ratings on the 2021-22 report cards.
At the foundation of the report cards are four priority areas. Schools and districts receive a score for each priority area:
The priority area scores are aggregated into an overall accountability score, from 0 to 100. This score is displayed on the front page of the school or district report cards. It is important to note that the 0 to 100 accountability score is not a “percent correct” measurement. Based on its score, a school or district receives one of five rating categories, from Fails to Meet Expectations to Significantly Exceeds Expectations, as well as corresponding one to five stars.
School and district report cards can be accessed online at http://dpi.wi.gov/accountability/report-cards along with resources that explain the report cards. I have included the report card for Longfellow Elementary here as well. Our school report card is also posted on our website: https://www.sheboygan.k12.wi.u... let me know your thoughts and questions as they arise. I look forward to working with you to make 2022-23 a successful school year for your student!
