Strategy & Accountability
The District’s Mission, Vision and Core Values establish the foundation upon which the Elmbrook Schools’ strategy is developed.
During the 2012-13 school year, a new approach towards managing the District's strategy designed to align goals from the board room to the classroom. In March, more than 9,000 students, staff, parents, community members and alumni identified strengths and opportunities for improvement in three goal areas, as the District seeks to become:
Key objectives were established for the goal areas and presented in a strategy map (below). Each objective is supported with key projects, metrics and reporting expectations to ensure purposeful work, direct accountability, and identifiable results.
The Reporting and Accountability Framework document provides a list of reports with a timeline for review of Board Committees and/or the full Board of Education.
In November 2016, the Department of Public Instruction released district scorecards to help parents and students compare districts across the state using common criteria in the areas of: Student Achievement, Student Growth, Closing Gaps, and Post-Secondary Readiness.
Elmbrook uses the report card as one measure to evaluate the success of the district, particularly in relation to its benchmark peers. To view all district or school report cards, visit the DPI Report Card Web Site.
