EAU CLAIRE, Wis. (WLAX/WEUX) – Grades are out for school districts in the state. The Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction Report Cards are meant to provide data about four priority areas. They include achievement, growth, target group outcomes and on track to graduation.

(Mike Johnson) The Eau Claire Area School District superintendent says he looks for growth in these report cards, “A prime focus for us here in our district is to serve all students. And when we serve all students, we really look at the underrepresented groups of students, students in poverty, students of color, students in special education programming. And the growth for those students really impacts our overall achievement.” 

The Eau Claire Area School District’s overall score fell into the “meets expectation” standard. The Chippewa Falls Area Unified School District was also labeled as “meets expectations”.
