All eight Muskego-Norway schools met or exceeded expectations, according to the report cards, which are part of a new system to measure student achievement and engagement.
Districts and schools are evaluated on student achievement and growth in reading and math, closing performance gaps and college and career readiness.
Bay Lane Middle School, Country Meadows Elementary, Lakeview Elementary, Muskego Elementary and Muskego High School were all rated as exceeding expectations.
Lake Denoon Middle School and Mill Valley Elementary School met expectations. The Muskego-Norway School District as a whole received a score of exceeding expectations.
Within those results were several highlights, which the district noted in a press release issued Tuesday. Among them:
- Overall accountability scores increasing at Muskego High School, Muskego Elementary and Lakeview Elementary;
- A perfect score in math achievement at Country Meadows Elementary;
- Significant improvements in closing gaps at Bay Lane and Muskego High School.
State Superintendent Tony Evers said the report cards don't provide a full picture of successes and challenges in each district, but are a "door" to make sure schools are preparing students to graduate college and be ready for their careers.
"These preliminary district and school report cards provide valuable information about education in Wisconsin," Evers said. "They offer a starting point for schools and districts to plan improvements.
"Additionally, report cards show how Wisconsin can continue to refine its accountability system to truly serve the education community, parents, policymakers, and the public."
