State’s report cards show Sun Prairie exceeds expectations

State education officials say the majority of Wisconsin public schools and school districts meet or exceed expectations for student achievement.

The Sun Prairie School District exceeds expectations.

The state report cards for about 2,100 public schools show approximately 88 percent met or exceeded expectations. About 98 percent of the state's 424 districts also achieved that mark.

It's the second year the state Department of Public Instruction has issued district report cards and the third year for schools.

Both are evaluated in four main areas; student achievement in reading and math on statewide assessments, student growth in those assessments, closing achievement and graduation gaps and readiness for college or careers.
