Are students connected and engaged?

School Performance Report
The School Performance Report is like an annual health check-up. The purpose is to provide a picture of overall "health" of the district. Included in this report is data about attendance, student participation in activites, and other indicators of performance. The district uses information in this report to identify areas of strength and areas in need of improvement. Below you will see some data on Lincoln Elementary students. For a full version of the district School Performance Report, log on to the Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction WINSS database at www.dpi.state.wi.us/sig.
Enrollment information is broken down by gender, ethnicity, disability and English proficiency.
Attendance is face-to-face instructional contact between a student and a teacher. It is collected for the entire school year. The attendance rate is actual days of attendance divided by possible days of attendance, expressed as a percentage. The smallest reportable unit of attendance is one-half day.
Other data reported include habitual truancy, suspensions and expulsions. In 2009-2010, Lincoln had no students report as habitual truant. A habitual truant student is defined as one who is absent from school without an acceptable excuse for part or all of five or more days on which school is held during a semester. In 2008-09, Lincoln reported only one suspension and no expulsions.
