MADISON, Wis. -

Five school districts and 99 schools in Wisconsin have been slapped with failing grades, according to report cards released Thursday by the state Department of Public Instruction.

The vast majority — 82 percent of schools and 91 percent of districts — scored three or more stars, meaning they met or exceeded expectations. The five that failed to meet expectations — the lowest score — were Racine, Bayfield, Cambria-Friesland, Cassville and Menominee Indian.

Eighty-two percent of schools and 91 percent of districts scored three or more stars, meaning they met or exceeded expectations. The five districts that failed to meet expectations, which is the lowest score, were Racine, Bayfield, Cambria-Friesland, Cassville and Menominee Indian.

The state Department of Public Instruction released the report cards Thursday. There were no report cards last year because the Legislature was still overhauling the system to define what is reported and how.

Schools have to be in the lowest category for two consecutive years before they face any sanctions.
