MINOCQUA – Lakeland Union High School met state “expectations” last year in most of the critical areas of education, according to the recently released school report card.

The Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction issues annual report cards for every district and school in Wisconsin. School administrator Jim Bouche told the school board Monday night that the 2017-18 report card score of 69.8 was the best the district has seen since those reports were required. However, he and others note that comparison with other years is difficult because the criteria in determining the score keep changing.

Lakeland bested the state average in English Language Arts and mathematics achievements, as well as its graduation rate and for postsecondary readiness. However it lagged the state in closing the gap between student groups in English Language Arts.

On a brighter note, it exceeded the state in closing gaps in mathematics achievement and graduation rate. Of the 698 students at Lakeland, about 12 percent are classified with disabilities and 38 percent as economically disadvantaged. About 72 percent of the student body is white and 22 percent American Indian. The two grades above Lakeland are exceeds expectations, and significantly exceeds expectations.
