DPI Releases Annual Report Card For Wisconsin School Districts

(Beaver Dam) The state Department of Public Instruction have released their annual report cards for Wisconsin school districts. Public Instruction reports about 95-percent of Wisconsin school districts have exceeded – or significantly exceeded – expectations. The report card gives 399 of the 421 public school districts a three-star or higher rating on a five-star scale. DPI officials say the schools achieved that performance level despite the challenges offered by the COVID pandemic. 

The Beaver Dam School District meets expectations with a three-star rating or an overall score of 58.9. The high school received a score of 89.4 for their on-track to graduate priority area which is 32.3-percent higher than all other high schools in the state. 

Other area school districts that meet expectations include Cambria-Friesland with a score of 69.1, Columbus which too scored a 69.1, Horicon with a score of 65.1, Lomira who notched an overall score of 69.2, Randolph got a score of 69, Watertown received a score of 69.1, and Waupun with a 60.3. 

Three school districts exceeded expectations and garnered four stars: Fox Lake with a score 79.1, Hustisford with a 72.9, and Mayville with an overall score of 80.2 – the highest score in all of Dodge County. Districts that meet few expectations include Dodgeland with a score of 56.2. The Waunakee Community School District earned the only five-star rating in the report card issued this week.
