State report cards give good news for elementary, high schools
School FSD

There was good news for Fennimore School District last week with the release of the Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction’s school report cards for the 2016-2017 school year.

Fennimore found itself on the upper end of meeting expectations with a score of 71.5 for the district as a whole.

“We are third for schools in our adjoining area,” said District Administrator Jane Wonderling. “…Our goal is to be at the top of that list.”

The news was even better for the elementary, which received a score of 82.2 – exceeding expectation. The high school is also exceeding expectation, with a score of 77.1. (Maximum score 100.)

The district, elementary, and high school scores are all improvements over the preceding year. The district received a score of 63.04 for the 2015-2016 school year. The elementary score was 71.9 in 2015-2016, and the high school score was 70.7.
The 2016-2017 middle school fared worst, with a score of 58 – meeting few expectations.
