The school report cards released by the state Department of Public Instruction are now in their fourth year. The report cards are designed to be used by people living in the districts to hold schools accountable for their performance and growth, or reduction in scores, from year to year. Overall, the report cards showed growth but pockets of under-performing schools remain. Of the 53 schools receiving the lowest one-star rating, meaning they failed to meet expectations, more than half — 28 — were in the Milwaukee Public School District. That district received a two-star rating, meaning it meets few expectations.
