February 7, 2012 Introducing WISEmaps!
WISEmaps is a new publicly available tool that is part of DPI’s Wisconsin Information System for Education (WISE). WISEmaps provides a useful and compelling way to visualize education data—on a map! In addition, since the data available comes from WINSS, it has already been redacted to protect the privacy of students.
WISEmaps can be accessed on the web at http://wisemaps.dpi.wi.gov.
For more information on WISEmaps, view the WISEmaps Handout.

Additional information has been added to the Wisconsin School District Performance Report (SDPR), the on-line report published by the Department of Public Instruction (DPI).
