MAPS district report card meets expectations

Annual report cards released by the Department of Public Instruction show the majority of Wisconsin's schools are performing well.

The DPI statewide data, which includes data on multiple indicators for multiple years across four priority areas, also indicated that 161 schools in the state of Wisconsin had score fluctuations of 10 or more points in both overall and growth scores compared to 2015-16. This affected the report cards by showing less participation.

Lebanon Elementary received the highest score in the WUSD, netting 91.1 while Watertown High School received the lowest score of 65.

Leopold Elementary, East High, Sennett Middle, Cherokee Heights Middle and LeFollette High School are listed as meeting few expectations.

And one of the district's charter school, TAGOS Leadership Academy, received a rating of "fails to meet expectations".

The West Salem School District was rated among the highest in the La Crosse area behind only Onalaksa, Bangor, and Cashton.

The state on Tuesday released performance results for all 2,447 schools and 422 districts. The Merrill Area Public Schools (MAPS) district met expectations set forth by the state on the 2016-2017 report card.

Another key takeaway from this round of report cards: no districts received failing scores.

One of the struggles for TAGOS has been absenteeism, which hurts the school's overall report card score, district officials said. "While they provide us with some information about our students and schools, they are not the only method by which we determine success, nor the sole means of identifying areas of improvement".

One of TAGOS's objectives is to get students back in the habit of going to school.
