Coleman Earns Highest Rating on DPI Report Card
Coleman School District earned five out of five stars on the state report card from the Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction, issued for the 2015-16 school year. Based on the star rating, Coleman significantly exceeds expectations for educating students and earned the highest mark a district can obtain.
Report cards are issued based on four priority areas: student achievement in English language arts and mathematics, student growth, closing gaps between student populations, and measure of readiness for graduation and postsecondary success. While school and district report cards provide information to the community, they do not represent a full picture of the work happening at a school.
“These report cards show us a score on how we are performing on various assessments with our students; however, it does not show the curiosity, courage and persistence they show everyday in order to achieve such great scores,” says District Administrator and High School Principal, Douglas Polomis.
“Accomplishments like this are are not reached in isolation but through the hard work and collaboration of our school board, teachers, staff, students and families. Even though these tests began in the 3rd grade, these students came in with a strong foundation that was built up from their early schooling years and home. Our students continue to amaze us in all they can do and inspire to be,” says Yvette Marshall, District Director of Administrative Services.
The 2015-16 report cards underwent major changes that were part of Wisconsin Act 55, the 2015-17 state budget. Those changes include variable weighting to address the impacts of poverty on student achievement, a new model for measuring student growth based on value-added methodology developed by the University of Wisconsin-Madison, and the legislative requirement to change from the Badger Exam offered through the Smarter Balanced Assessment Consortium to the Forward Exam. Because report cards rely on multiple years of data, the 2015-16 report cards are based on one year each of Badger and Forward exams for grades three through eight and the ACT Plus Writing as well as Dynamic Learning Maps assessments in grades three through eight and grade 11. The third year of data came from the Wisconsin Knowledge and Concepts Exam and Wisconsin Alternate Assessment for Students with Disabilities. Using data from three different assessments in calculations, along with other legislated changes, makes comparisons of school and district performance to prior report card ratings inaccurate and inadvisable.
The School District of Coleman serves 725 students and recently reported gains in students who are open enrolled into the district.

FFA Operation Christmas Cheer Donation Drive a success! Thanks for all the generosity! The FFA received over 10 sets of lights, several strands of garland, and over 200 ornaments.

Pictured are Sentinel - Emily Cudnohosky, Historian - Abigail Marquardt, and member - Morgan Messenger as they organize the donations.
With the holiday season right around the corner, we would like to provide you with an opportunity to help local families celebrate a happy holiday.
This is the second year the Coleman High School Leadership Group is helping our local “Charitable Giving Center” (Nana Sueper00 Foundation) in sponsoring a Giving Tree charity during the holiday season. Students and community members are invited to participate in this charity by taking a paper ornament off the tree located in the Elementary or High School lobby. The ornaments on the tree will have specific items listed that would help local families in need. Then once the item(s) are purchased, put the bagged or unwrapped items under the tree along with the ornament. We appreciate any donations you can give and we hope you consider helping others in need during this holiday season.
If you know of any parents that are in need of assistance with holiday gifts for their children, they can contact Mrs. Kelly Mitchell, our school’s nurse about filling out a tag for their child/children. Donations for the Giving Tree will be taking place until Monday, December 19th.
