The School District of Brodhead’s grade level and subject area curriculum is aligned to the Wisconsin Model Academic Standards and the Common Core State Standards. Wisconsin Academic Standards identify what students should know and be able to do in the classroom for each content area, by the end of grade 4, 8, and 12. The Common Core State Standards outline what students need to know and be able to do in English/Language Arts (K-5 and 6-12), Mathematics (K-12), Literacy in History/Social Studies (6-12), Literacy in Science (6-12), and Literacy in Technical Subjects (6-12). Standards are used as the foundation for teaching and learning. Educators identify and communicate specific goals for daily instruction. These goals are learning targets that highlight essential skills and concepts.

School Performance Report
Each year, school districts across the state are required by law to present a “School Performance Report” to parents and the community. The District is pleased to share the following educational status report with you. It’s our hope that this information will provide you with a better understanding of the District’s programs, progress, and challenges.
In this report you will find data on such wide-ranging topics as achievement test results, ACT, AP Exam, retention, attendance, dropouts, truancy, high school completion, post-graduation plans, program offerings and participation, staffing, finance, suspensions, and expulsions. We encourage you to review the information presented, to learn more about your school district.
Providing excellence in education for our children is a challenge the schools cannot address alone. Progressive educational opportunity and student success depend on a strong partnership of school, home and community. Only by working together can we provide the best education for our children.
The information presented here will provide the basis for on-going review of our programs. This data collection and analysis was begun by the DPI in 1991, to guide districts’ efforts toward improvement. Our goal is to use this information in our continuing efforts to improve what we do, building upon our strengths and addressing our weaknesses.
We thank the community for your continuing support of our school system, and look forward to a continuing partnership in providing the best educational opportunities for our children.
