Annually the Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction releases School Report Cards measuring and reporting school effectiveness in four areas and now also shows test participation rates*. Each School Report Card calculates a school's accountability index score (0-100) through the use of a complex mathematical formula. Based upon this score, the school earns one of the five ratings: Significantly Exceeds Expectations, Exceeds Expectations, Meets Expectations, Meets Few Expectations and Fails to Meet Expectations. Beginning with the 2012-13 school year, District Report Cards also became available.
