School District Report Card Ratings Released
According to the 2018-19 school report cards released by the Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction in November, the Seneca Area School District earned a score of 69.4, and a rating of 3 stars out of a possible 5. Based on the star rating, the Seneca Area School District Meets Expectations for educating students. Report cards are issued based on four priority areas: student achievement in English language arts and mathematics, student growth, closing gaps between student populations, and measures of readiness for graduation and postsecondary success.
The District score is a composite of the three schools making up the District. Breaking the District scores down by grade levels: The high school received a rating of 72.1, “meets expectations” (3 stars). The middle school received a score of 77.3, “exceeds expectations” (4 stars). The elementary received a score of 62.2, “meets few expectations” (2 stars). We were pleased to see that student achievement at all levels was significantly higher than the state average. We continue to work hard to improve our students in any areas of need.
While school and district report cards provide information to the community, they do not represent a full picture of the work happening at a school. Our school continues to provide the best possible educational opportunities for our students by promoting a balance of academics, extra-curricular activities, vocational opportunities, and values. We will continue to emphasize character traits like leadership, self-esteem, achievement, accountability, and strong work ethics in our young people. The District report card reflects the dedication of the students and parents, the quality of the staff, and the commitment of the community towards our school district.
