DPI School Report Cards
Note About the 2019-20 School Year Report Cards:
Per the Wisconsin DPI: 2019 Wisconsin Act 185 prohibits the release of school and district accountability report cards in the 2020-21 school year. This means OEA will not issue school or district report cards for 2019-20 (the report cards that would usually be publicly released in November).
2018-19 School Report Cards
The Mequon-Thiensville School District Significantly Exceeds Expectations on the 2018-19 School Report Cards issued in November 2019 by the Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction. The district's ranked score is the 2nd highest score among K-12 public school districts in the state. MTSD has significantly exceeded expectations all six years the District Report Cards have been produced.
In addition, all six schools in the Mequon-Thiensville School District exceed or significantly exceed expectations based on 2018-19 data. Highlights of MTSD School Report Cards include the following:
- Donges Bay Elementary School earned its highest-ever index score of 93.8
- Homestead High School earned its highest index score ever of 91.4.
- Donges Bay Elementary School, Lake Shore Middle School, Steffen Middle School, and Homestead High School all earned their highest Closing Gaps index score.
- Homestead High School earned a perfect index score for Graduation Rate Gaps.
The Accountability Report Card is part of Wisconsin's Accountability System. Accountability Report Cards include data on multiple indicators for multiple years across four Priority Areas (Student Achievement, Growth, Closing Gaps, and On-track and Post-Secondary Readiness). Priority area scores are aggregated into an overall accountability score from 0 to 100. 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.
The purpose of the Accountability System is to help parents, educators, and the public understand how schools and districts are performing. Report Cards also help schools and districts identify areas of strength and areas of focus to influence improvement efforts.
