The Department of Public Instruction is busy putting those report cards together. So busy that today they declined our request for an interview.
However on DPI’s website they break down how to read the new report cards.
The more in depth progress reports will give faculty, staff and you the parent a better idea of the strengths and weaknesses of your child’s school.
Madison Metropolitan School District’s Interim Superintendent Jane Belmore says, ” This is just a new way to put it together so that it can be communicated, we hope, in a stronger way. ”
Schools are graded on a scale from 0-to-100. Accoridng to Jane Belmore a failing school will not neccasarily face disciplinary action from the district.
