The state’s report cards are out for every school district, and nearly all Fox Valley schools exceed expectations.
The Department of Public Instruction bases the grades on a number of factors, including test scores and growth.
Kevin Steinhilber is an administrator with Appleton schools. The district met expectations, at 68-1/2 percent, and that’s up almost 2-1/2 percent.
The Oshkosh school district moved up from meeting expectations last year, to exceeding them. Administrator Julie Conrad says they’re closing the achievement gap for minority and disabled students.
The Kimberly and Wrightstown districts had top grades, for significantly exceeding expectations.
