The Department of Public Instruction (DPI) creates 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 all schools and districts utilize data on specific measures to target improvement efforts to ensure students are ready for the next educational step – including the next grade level, graduation, college, and careers.
At the foundation of the report cards are four priority areas. Schools and districts receive a score for each priority area:
- Student Achievement proficiency in English Language Arts (ELA) 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 a racial or an ethnic group with their peers
- On-Track and Postsecondary Readiness is a measurement using reliable predictors of high school graduation and potential post high school success
Schools and districts are also evaluated on their level of student engagement – test participation rates, chronic absenteeism rates, and dropout rates when applicable. 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 one to five stars.
