Dear Residents of the School District of Florence County –
The Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction (DPI) recently published school district report
cards based on student testing that took place during the 2022-2023 school year. Report Cards are
issued annually. Areas tested are English/Language Arts and Mathematics. Other areas reviewed are
absenteeism and whether students are on track to graduate.
Based on the 2022-2023 test results, the School District of Florence County exceeded
expectations in all areas. This is the second year in a row that the District exceeded expectations.
Congratulations to all of our staff on this accomplishment. It is something to be proud of and an
indication of the great work being done in educating our students each and every day.
