The Brodhead School District received a rating of “Exceeds Expectations” on the latest State report card.  The State report cards were just released for the 2018-19 school year.  This is the third year in a row that the District has scored in the “Exceeds” category.

The accountability index score is based on the school’s performance in four priority areas: student achievement, student growth, closing gaps, on-track/postsecondary readiness.  In addition, the school report card displays the school’s performance on three areas of student engagement, including State test participation rates in ELA and mathematics, absenteeism, and dropout rates.

Districts/schools are given one of five ratings—from Significantly Exceeds Expectations to Fails to Meet Expectations.  Brodhead received an overall District score of 74.6, “Exceeds Expectations”, according to the Department of Public Instruction report card.  For the fourth year in a row Albrecht Elementary School was rated as “Exceeds Expectations”.  Their score of 82.1 just missed the highest category of “Significantly Exceeds Expectations”.  The Middle School, 73.4, increased their overall score and moved into the “Exceeds Expectations” category.  The High School, 69.1, scored in the “Meets Expectations” category.

As a District, we use the DPI Accountability Report Card along with internal District assessments and grade/classroom assessments to measure the success of our students.  Our staff has worked extremely hard to develop the foundations of a strong academic program.  We use professional learning communities to dissect our data, establish learning targets, and align our assessments to these targets.  We are proud of the education our students are receiving and we will continue our work towards continuous improvement throughout the District.
