As part of the state accountability system, the Department of Public Instruction (DPI) produces report cards for every publicly funded school and district in Wisconsin. These report cards include data on multiple indicators for multiple years across four Priority Areas (Achievement, Growth, Target Group Outcomes, and On-track to Graduation). In addition, the report cards provide course and program participation information for grades 9-12 for public schools and districts. A school or district’s overall accountability score places the school/district into one of five overall accountability ratings – Significantly exceeds expectations, Exceeds expectations, Meets expectations, Meets few expectations and Fails to meet expectations.
For the 2020-2021 school year the School District of Turtle Lake earned a Significantly Exceeds Expectations honors. The district is one of only two school districts in the area to achieve this high honor. “We have excellent staff and students that have continued to work hard and be resilient during the pandemic.” Superintendent Kindschy.
The Elementary School scored the highest in the district by Significantly Exceeding Expectations with a score of 91.8. The Middle School Meet Expectations with a score of 68.9 and the High School Exceeded Expectations with a score of 78.6. Scores can be found at www.apps2. dpi.wi.gov/reportcards.
