The Wisconsin Education Association Council Region 7 (for southeast Wisconsin) has released grades for how safe local school district reopening plans are in SE Wisconsin.

It analyzed 12 different school districts and didn't give out any 'A' grades.

Here is a quick glance at the report card:

  • Cudahy - 'F'
  • Franklin - 'F'
  • Greendale - 'F'
  • Kenosha - 'C'
  • Kettle Moraine - 'F'
  • Milwaukee - 'B'
  • Oak Creek - Franklin - 'F'
  • Racine - 'B'
  • South Milwaukee - 'B'
  • St. Francis - 'C'
  • West Allis - West Milwaukee - 'B'
  • West Bend - 'F'

A total of 14 different criteria were used to determine these grades including, in-person/virtual learning plans, COVID-19 testing procedures, and substitute teacher availability among others.

These grades come as school districts across the state grapple with how to begin the upcoming school year. Many have voted on what to do while others are still trying to figure it out.

Gov. Evers said that he will not make any statewide mandate regarding how schools should operate. He said that is up to each district.
