MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- The second year of report cards showing how well Wisconsin schools meet performance requirements are being released Tuesday.

For the first time, the report cards will show district-wide data in addition to numbers for individual schools.

The Department of Public Instruction is releasing the report cards, which were distributed to schools a month ago. The department cautions that scores from last year may not be comparable to this year due to calculation changes.

Department spokesman John Johnson says the report cards remain a work in progress.

Last year, the report cards showed that nearly 86 percent of schools met, exceeded or significantly exceeded expectations. Only 76 schools, or about 3.5 percent of all 2,118 statewide, failed to meet expectations, the lowest possible ranking.
