Green Bay Area Public School District Meets Expectations: Increased Scores in Three Priority Areas

For the third year in a row, the Department of Public Instruction has released the state report cards, which measure four priority areas: student achievement, student growth, closing gaps and on-track and postsecondary readiness.

The Green Bay Area Public School District’s (GBAPS) report card finds that the school district meets expectations for the second year in a row, with the overall score increasing from 63.8 to 64.5.

Out of the four priority areas, GBAPS’s district scores increased in student growth, closing gaps and on-track and postsecondary readiness from the 2012-13 report card.

“The District’s report card reflects our focus on continuous school improvement,” stated Assistant Superintendent Mark Smith.  “What is most important to note in the report is our student’s improved growth. The District had a significant 5.3 point increase (57.9 vs. 52.6), with growth in both reading and math.”

The report card also shows the school district is making gains in closing the achievement gap, with an overall score of 63.5 vs. 62.7 in 2012-13.

Finally, the District’s on-track and postsecondary readiness score increased to 80.7 vs. 80.3 in 2012-13. The two areas where the District demonstrated improvements were in attendance and graduation scores.

“While we are happy to see that the trajectory for our district continues to move in the right direction, we recognize that we are not yet where we need or want to be,” stated Superintendent of Schools and Learning Michelle Langenfeld.  “We are confident that we will continue to see improvement as we collaborate with community partners, focus on education customization pathways, and partner with our staff, who work diligently on behalf of our students.”
