Annual Notice - State Report Card

As a learning community and as part of our results-oriented strategic plan, we are focused on continuous improvement. The school report card is one resource we use to reflect on our strengths and areas for growth. 

The Department of Public Instruction (DPI) is required by state statute (Wis. Stat. 115.385) to generate 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 schools and districts use performance data to celebrate successes and improve their efforts to prepare students for their futures. These public report cards can be found online at:

The current school report card is primarily based on last year’s performance during the 2021-22 school year. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, DPI encourages caution when interpreting scores and ratings on the 2021-22 report cards. 

At the foundation of the report cards are four priority areas. Schools and districts receive a score for each priority area: 

  • Achievement - proficiency in English language arts (ELA) and mathematics on the annual state assessments

  • Growth - year-to-year progress in ELA and math achievement

  • Target Group Outcomes - outcomes for students with the lowest test scores: the Target Group.

  • On-Track to Graduation - reliable predictors of how successfully students are progressing toward completing their K-12 education.

The priority area scores are aggregated into an overall accountability score, from 0 to 100. This score is displayed on the front page of the school or district report cards. 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.

We want to share these results because they help illuminate some of our successes and help pinpoint areas of focus. But as DPI stresses, these report cards are just one source of information about our school. To learn more about the Fort School’s State Report Card, please watch our November Strategic Plan Update presentation that was shared with the Board of Education.   

School and district report cards can be accessed online at along with resources that explain the report cards.
