Sevastopol School Outscores Most Districts in Statewide Report

The Wisconsin Department of Instruction (WDPI) recently released statewide scorecard results for the 2015-2016 school year. Sevastopol School District realized a score of 90.6 within an overall 83-100 accountability rating as Significantly Exceeds Expectations.

Districts receiving this rating greatly exceed expectations for student achievement, student growth, educational equity and preparing students for educational milestones, including college and career readiness, according to sources provided by WDPI.

“This district-wide recognition is testament to the great work of our teachers and staff, as well as their commitment to our students,” said Middle School and High School Principal Adam Baier. “To be named one of the top 10 highest achieving districts out of 424 school districts in Wisconsin is remarkable.”

Only two traditional 4K-12 schools scored higher in the overall rating.

School board president Sue Todey added, “These fantastic results reflect our outstanding students and their strong commitment to excellence. The entire Sevastopol community plays a role in this success. Congratulations to all.”

“I would like to also congratulate our students past and present for the daily effort they put into their education, as well as thank their parents and other community supporters. Door County has a great educational environment with strong community resources. Together with our school, we create quality outcomes for student success,” added Steve Cromell, Sevastopol District Administrator.

The Gibraltar Area School District scored 80.8 and earned an Exceeds Expectations rating. The Sturgeon Bay School District received a score of 80.5 and a rating of Exceeds Expectations. The Southern Door School District received a score of 75.7 and rated Exceeds Expectations. Washington Island scored 71.5, and a Meets Expectations rating. The Luxemburg-Casco School District scored 80.6 and earned an Exceeds Expectations rating. The Algoma School District scored 73.6 and was rated Exceeds Expectations.

As part of the state accountability system, the WDPI produces report cards for every district and school in Wisconsin, and includes data on multiple indicators for multiple years. In addition to the priority areas mentioned above, performance on three Student Engagement Indicators is also reported. These three indicators affect student success and school effectiveness and include test participation rate (with a goal of 95 percent participation), absenteeism rate (with a goal of 13 percent or less), and dropout rate (with a goal of six percent or less).
