The Northern Ozaukee School District’s state report card showed the district as a whole exceeding state scores but falling short in some categories at the high-school and middle-school levels.

NOSD scored a 70.4, or “meets expectations,” in student achievement in English and math above the state average of 62.3, according to the state Department of Public Instruction.

Overall “district growth” scored 66.1, barely beating the state average of 66 due to a mathematics growth number of 30.2 compared to the average state score of 33.

In “closing the gaps” in student achievement, NOSD scored 73.5 compared to 68.8 statewide.

The district scored 91.2 in “on-track and postsecondary readiness” compared to a statewide score of 84.8.

Ozaukee High School scored lower than average in growth (49 compared to 66) and “closing the gaps” (62.7 compared to 67.3) but excelled in the other areas.

The middle school fell short in “closing the gaps” but out scored the state in the other three areas.

Ozaukee Elementary School exceeded or significantly exceeded expectations in every category.

The scores were presented last month to the Northern Ozaukee School Board.

Principals told board members that they are ramping up test preparation tools and one-on-one teaching opportunities for students to help them improve.
