Most public schools are meeting or going beyond state expectations in the Northwoods.

School report cards released each September look at how students are doing in reading and math, attendance and graduation rates.  There are also categories that measure student improvement, and how schools are closing performance gaps between demographics. 

In Crandon, District Administrator Jim Asher says schools did better than state averages in student growth and closing the gap categories...and but still need work on some academic indicators.

School report cards are in, and Northwoods school districts are on track or exceeding expectations. 

The statewide performance report ranks schools on measures like student achievement, attendance and college readiness. Schools get placed in one of five categories between "failing" and "significantly exceeding expectations."

Northland Pines schools in Eagle River was rated as "exceeding expectations". District Administrator Dr.  Mike Richie says the numbers are positive.
