2018/2019 DPI School Report Card

The Department of Public Instruction (DPI) generates Accountability Report Cards for all publicly funded schools and districts in the state. Report cards for private schools participating in the Private School Choice Programs were first required for the 2015-16 school year. Choice schools did not receive any score or ratings on the last year’s accountability report card, since DPI only had a single year of data available for Choice students and the report cards require multiple years of data to produce a score. 2016-2017 is the first year that private school participating in the Choice Program can receive overall scores or ratings.

DPI produces two versions of each Report Card: one labeled “School Report Card” click here and lengthier, detailed version labeled, “School Report Card Detail” click here. Both versions can be accessed online along with resources that explain the report cards, click here to view. While our school has received a Private School – Choice Students Report Card that focuses only on students in participating in the Choice program that elected to take the exam. Schools that did not have sufficient data to calculate an accountability score or rating will see “NR-Data” in the top left corner. This can occur if there are too few choice students in the school.

The legislative requirements to produce these reports cards allow choice schools to opt-in to receive a report card for all students attending the private school. We have chosen to not opt into the Private School Report Card at this time and will continue to evaluate in the future. As required by our participation in MCPC and WCPC, click here to view the one-page School Report Card for Grace Lutheran School and a list of educational options.
