1An Act to amend

115.38 (2) of the 2
statutes; relating to: school and school district performance reports.
Analysis by the Legislative Reference Bureau
Under current law, each school board must annually distribute to the parent or
guardian of each pupil enrolled in the school district a copy of the school and school
district performance report, which contains information such as scores on statewide
pupil examinations and attendance and retention rates. This bill requires instead
that the school board send each parent or guardian a notice that the report is
available upon the parent's or guardian's request, produce a copy of the report upon
request, and, if the school district maintains an Internet site, make the report
available to the public at that site.
For further information see the local fiscal estimate, which will be printed as
an appendix to this bill.
The people of the state of Wisconsin, represented in senate and assembly, do
enact as follows:
