Under section 120.12(13) of the state statutes, as created by 2015 Wisconsin Act 55, public school districts are required to annually communicate to parents and guardians the following:
- the academic standards adopted by the school board for the school year
- the school's accountability report (report card)
- a list of the educational options available
- the existence of the special needs voucher program
The School Board of the D.C. Everest School District has adopted academic standards for the 2018-2019 school year. The standards may be viewed here by subject:
As part of the new state accountability system, the Department of Public Instruction (DPI) has produced report cards for every district and school in Wisconsin. These report cards provide data on multiple indicators. This data always lags by one school year. "Report Cards" for the 2016-17 school year are currently available. View the most recent report card.
School districts are required to provide a list of the educational options available to children who reside in the pupil's resident school district, including public schools, private schools participating in a private school choice program, charter schools, virtual schools, fulltime open enrollment, youth options, course options, and options for pupils enrolled in a home-based private educational program. Please use the links below for more information.
Special Education Voucher Program
A child with a disability is allowed to attend a participating private school of the child or the child's parent's choice, if that child has previously been rejected from attending school in a nonresident district under the open enrollment program. An eligible child may begin attending an eligible school at any time during the school year.
