3publication of school and school district accountability reports.
Analysis by the Legislative Reference Bureau
This bill requires the Department of Public Instruction to publish its annual
school and school district accountability report by November 30, rather than in
September. The school accountability report provides information about pupil
achievement in reading and mathematics and rates of high school graduation,
among other measures.
This bill also changes the date by which DPI must determine whether a school
is eligible to be placed in the Opportunity Schools and Partnership Program. Under
current law, a school is eligible to be placed in the OSPP based in part on how the
school performed on the two most recent accountability reports prepared for the
school and DPI must make this determination by October 15. This bill changes the
date to November 30.
The people of the state of Wisconsin, represented in senate and assembly, do
enact as follows:
