Posted January 11, 2007

The ability of the staff I have experienced so far seems limited in keeping the children excited about learning. Asked for web based access to homework assignments they where not available. Asked to be able to email my child's teacher and I was told they could not. I took it up with the schools district office and then the school was directed to use email as a other option to communicate with parents. Curriculum for computers is entirely to limited. Few after school activity choices. Little help for students that fall in the middle wear they need extra help from time to time. I asked if my child could be kept in from recess at times when extra help is needed and I was told the teacher needs that time to consult with other staff members.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 Wisconsin used the Wisconsin Student Assessment System (WSAS), which includes the WKCE and WAA, to test students in grades 3 through 8 and 10 in math and reading, and in grades 4, 8 and 10 in language arts, science and social studies. The WSAS is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Wisconsin. The goal is for all students to score at or above the proficient level. In private schools, only voucher program participants are tested.
