MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- The majority of Wisconsin public schools and districts meet or exceed expectations as graded on report cards released by the Department of Public Instruction.
The report cards released Tuesday show that all but 11 districts met or exceeded expectations during the 2012 school year. Milwaukee Public Schools was the only district that failed to meet expectations, while 10 districts met few expectations.
This is the first year the report card includes district-wide ratings. There were 1,910 individual schools statewide that received ratings. Of those, 88 percent meet or exceed expectations. That is up from nearly 86 percent last year, although how the scores are calculated has changed making comparisons to prior years difficult.
Only 58 schools, or about 3 percent of all, failed to meet expectations, the lowest possible ranking.
