Annual Notices

The HNR School District wants you to be informed.  State law requires important policies and procedures impacting students and employee safety, responsibilities and rights to be communicated on an annual basis.  If you would like a written copy of any of the policies below please contact the District Administrator in writing. 
Under Wisconsin State Budge Act 55, public schools are required to annually communicate the following additional information:
Accountability Report

The Department of Public Instruction (DPI) generates a School Report Card and District Report Card for every publicly funded school and district in the state. These public report cards can be found online at: The accountability report cards are intended to help schools and districts use performance data to target improvement efforts that ensure students are ready for their next educational step – including the next grade level, graduation, college, and careers.


Some schools like ours, do not have the data necessary to calculate School Report Card scores and instead participate in an  Alternate Accountability process. These schools include new schools; K-2 schools; schools without tested grades;schools exclusively serving at-risk students; and schools with fewer than 10 full academic year students.  Because the report cards depend on multiple data points across multiple years, DPI cannot calculate a traditional report card score for schools in these scenarios.  For the 20116-17 and 2017-18 school years, our school falls into this Alternative Accountability process. 

Alternate Accountability is a district-supervised self-evaluation process in which schools report and evaluate their performance in raising student achievement in English Language Arts (ELA), mathematics, and in preparing students to be on-track for college and careers. These priority areas align to those found in the School Report Cards. Instead of the five rating categories on the report card, Alternate Accountability schools receive a rating of either Satisfactory Progress or Needs Improvement.
