SHEBOYGAN, Wis. (WHBL) - Parents will have an opportunity to learn more about what the school report cards mean. The Sheboygan Area School District will be holding sessions on November 6 at Jackson Elementary School and November 8 at Lincoln Erdman Elementary to allow the public to better understand the numbers shown on the report cards and how the Department of Public Instruction came up with the numbers, says Joe Sheehan, Superintendent.
Twenty schools in the Sheboygan Area District were rated, including Charter Schools. Two schools significantly exceeded expectations, 6 exceeded expectations, 8 schools met expectations and 4 schools were rated as meeting few expectations. Those schools were Sheboygan South, Sheridan Elementary, James Madison Elementary and the Washington School of Comprehensive Literacy.

In Sheboygan Falls, all three schools met expectations, with the high school exceeding expectations. In Plymouth, five schools were rated and all but one met expectations, with the high school exceeding expectations.
