    View the District Report Card

    The Department of Public Instruction (DPI) generates 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 utilize performance data to target their improvement efforts so that students are ready for their next educational step – including the next grade level, graduation, college and careers. These public report cards can be found online at: http://dpi.wi.gov/accountability/report-cards

    The current School Report Card is primarily based on last year’s performance, the 2022-23 school year.  At the foundation of the report cards are four priority areas. Schools and districts receive a score for each priority area: 

    • Student Achievement proficiency in English Language Arts (ELA) and mathematics on the annual state assessments (Forward, ACT Aspire and ACT)
    • School Growth measured by year-to-year progress in ELA and math achievement
    • Target Group Outcomes examines outcomes for students with the lowest test scores–the Target Group. It is designed to promote equity by helping districts focus on learners who need the most support while also improving outcomes for all students.  
    • On-Track and Postsecondary Readiness showing reliable predictors of how many students are on-track to graduate from high school and student readiness for post-high school success

    The priority area scores are aggregated into an overall accountability score from 0 to 100. This score is displayed in the top left corner 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. Schools and districts are also evaluated on their level of student engagement – chronic absenteeism rates and dropout rates – when applicable.

    District Report Card highlights include:

    • The Stevens Point Area Public School District continues to Meet Expectations in the overall score. 
    • Five buildings in our district are categorized as Exceeding Expectations on the 2022-23 accountability report card. 
    • Attendance and graduation rates continue to be above state averages.
    • Achievement scores in both ELA and Mathematics are above state averages. 
    • On-Track to Graduation indicators for 3rd grade English Language Arts are above state averages. 
    • Our District is committed to preparing each student to be successful and will continue to use instructional practices which have a  positive impact on student learning.
    • Our district has continued to have more students than the state average engage in Dual Enrollment and Work-Based Learning courses.  
    • A continued emphasis on all students making projected growth is a priority area for our District.
    • Each building in our district creates a comprehensive continuous improvement plan with short and long term goals to support longitudinal growth and success.


    We want to share these results with you to highlight some of our successes and  identify areas of focus in our district. As DPI has indicated, these report cards are just one source of information about our District. 

    DPI has produced two versions of each Report Card: a quick one-page document labeled “School Report Card” and a more lengthy, detailed version labeled, “School Report Card Detail.” Both versions can be accessed online at http://dpi.wi.gov/accountability/report-cards along with resources that explain the report cards.

    We look forward to  continuing our partnership to make 2023-24 a successful and prosperous school year for our students!
