All WUSD Schools Meet or Exceed Expectations on State Report Cards; High School Improves Significantly

The Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction released its annual report cards on all the districts and schools in the state on Tuesday, 11/13. The ratings are based on test scores, student growth, absenteeism, the district’s ability to close gaps among disparate groups of students, being on-track for graduation, and post-high school readiness. The Whitewater Unified School District as a whole achieved a score of 73, which was exactly the minimum score required in order to be considered to “exceed expectations.”

The scores assign the performance of a district/school into one of five categories:

83-100, significantly exceeds expectations.

73-82.9, exceeds expectations.

63-72.9, meets expectations

53-62.9, meets few expectations.

0-52.9, fails to meet expectations.
