Janesville School District gets grade of 74.5 by DPI
Most Janesville schools are doing a fair to superior job of educating students, according to new report cards the state issued for schools statewide today.
The Janesville School District gave The Gazette an advance look at the local report cards on the condition that they not be revealed until today, when the state was scheduled to release report cards for all schools.
The report cards are designed to hold schools accountable for providing a quality education.
The state’s previous accountability system focused on test scores. The new assessments delve more deeply into the quality of teaching and the benefits that students receive from schools, Janesville school officials said.
The report cards detail various aspects of education at each school. They also boil down a school’s results to one number, based on a scale of 0 to 100. The score is called an accountability rating.
