Seal of Wisconsin

Greetings from Wisconsin


In 2018, the state of Wisconsin moved to separate state and federal accountability systems. The state accountability system - featuring annual School Report Cards and District Report Cards - is Wisconsin's primary accountability tool, and has been in place since 2011-12. Wisconsin also has a federal accountability system that fulfills ESSA requirements, which is being implemented over the course of the 2018-19 school year. This page provides resources and links to information about both systems. Questions about Wisconsin's resources may be directed to
