A well-rounded education

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 2014-15 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 2015-16 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.
