Kaukauna Schools Exceed Expectations

The Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction (DPI) released School Report Cards for all Wisconsin publicly-funded schools and districts on November 21, 2017. Kaukauna Area School District again earned outstanding scores: Victor Haen Elementary School and Park Community Charter School earned the “Significantly Exceeds Expectations” distinction; Electa Quinney Elementary School, New Directions Learning Community and River View Middle School earned a place in the “Exceeds Expectations” category; and Kaukauna High School is meeting expectations. Tanner Early Learning Center has a student body that it too young to take the standardized tests, and therefore, is not included in the DPI’s annual review. Because of the significant growth and success at the school level, our combined district accountability score and rating, landed KASD in the “Exceeds Expectations” category for the second year in a row. “These report cards are more evidence of the academic growth that continues to occur in the Kaukauna Area School District,” said Superintendent Mark Duerwaechter. “This is another proud moment for KASD, and we will continue down this path toward success. We didn’t come this far, to only come this far. Our staff and students continue to put in the work, achieve success and grow every day.” DPI’s School Report Cards are intended to help schools and districts examine data across four priority areas: Student Achievement, measured by proficiency in reading and mathematics on state assessments Student Growth, measured by year-to-year improvements in achievement Closing Gaps in performance On-track and Postsecondary Readiness Test participation, absenteeism and dropout rates are also measured. Kaukauna Area School District’s current report cards are all available on the Kaukauna Area School District’s District and School Performance web page. Past report cards can be viewed on the Wisconsin DPI website.

#KASDThanks30

Happy November! Now that Fall is in full swing (with the weather to prove it), and November is finally here, it's a great time to step back and reflect on what makes Kaukauna Area School District so special. We wouldn't be where we are without the support of so many, and so, this November, we'd like to give thanks where it is due. Each day in November, look for#KASDThanks30 on ourDistrict'sFacebook and Twitter pages, a chance for us to thank those individuals and groups that support our District and keep us Kaukauna Strong.

Academic All-State Honorees

Congratulations to fiveKHS golfers on their recognition as Academic All-State honoree for the recently concluded 2017 Girls Golf season. Kendall Williamson, Emma Moore, Ally Isselmann, Emily Andersonand Lily Sheppard earned the honors, presentedby the Golf Coaches Association of Wisconsin (GCAW). In order to be nominated, student-athletes must meet the following criteria: A cumulative grade point average of at least 3.25 Participation in at least 75% of their team’s varsity matches At least a sophomore in high school These students serve as a great example to others, proving that academic and athletic successes are not mutually exclusive. The coaches association announced during the week of October 23, 2017,that 305 girls from 97 high schools have been honored this year for maintaining high academic standards in the classroom while competing in varsity golf. In fact, the average cumulative GPA of this year’s honorees is an exceptional 3.785. The GCAW was formed by high school golf coaches in 1986 to help build Wisconsin's reputation for developing quality junior players by promoting golf in our schools and communities. Besides honoring both boys and girls who succeed as student athletes, the association also selects an annual All-State team for boys and girls based on their playing ability. An academic ‘Team’ award honoring high school teams with the highest cumulative GPA is also acknowledged. The girls’ team award will be announced in February, 2018.
