Financial data

 

Test scores and student data in this annual report were compiled from several sources. Wisconsin school districts are required to provide an annual report that compares local district data to statewide averages. Certain charts with statewide comparisons use 2012-13 school year data — the most recent available from the state Department of Public Instruction (DPI). The DPI tabulates local information with data from other Wisconsin school districts to determine school, district and state averages. In some cases, DPI data for the 2012-13 was not available and the most recent information from the state was used.

The Hamilton School District chose to provide additional information as well. In these cases, the most up-to-date information was used.

 DistrictBudget

General fund expenditures are the major expenditures within a school district budget. They include: licensed instruction; operational, administrative and other expenses; support services and transportation. Other costs not reported here include special projects, debt service and food service. The district's food service program is self-supporting and does not rely on local property taxes.

General fund revenues are financial resources available from local, state and federal sources. More than half of the district budget was funded through local property taxes and just under two-fifths was from state revenue which includes categorical- or handicapped, transportation, library and drivers' education- aid.

Highly Qualified teachers

Federal law requires that school districts share the qualifications of teachers.

All Hamilton School District teachers are licensed for their assignments.

Highly qualified means that the teacher:

  • has obtained full state certification as a teacher or passed the state teacher licensing examination and holds a license to teach in the state and does not have certification or licensure requirements waived on an emergency, temporary or provisional basis;
  • holds a minimum of a bachelor's degree; and
  • has demonstrated subject matter competency in each of the academic subjects in which the teacher teaches, in a manner determined by the state an in compliance with Section 9101 (23) of ESEA.

The statutory definition includes additional elements that apply somewhat differently to new and current teachers, and to elementary, middle and secondary school teachers. The complete definition of "highly qualified teacher" is in Section 9101 (23) of the ESEA. To see state qualification for a teacher, contact the district's Educational Services-Human Resources Office at (262) 246-1973 or visit www.dpi.state.wi.us/dpi/dlsis/tel/lisearch.html
