The Howard-Suamico School District and all eight of its schools meet or exceed expectations as defined in the new Accountability Report Cards released to the public today by the Wisconsin Department of Instruction.

“While we are pleased to see our schools meeting this measure as defined by the state, we know there are multiple ways to demonstrate and celebrate the success stories of our students,” said Superintendent Damian LaCroix. “Ultimately today’s Accountability Report Cards are one data point among many that measure and affirm the achievements of our students in HSSD.”

Reports for the District and each school are available on the Wisconsin DPI website public portal dashboard.
