Principal Message

Dear Lane Families,

This past week I had the privilege to join our 7th and 8th graders in Washington DC. Not only did our families do an excellent job planning, but our students represented West Allis well. Throughout the week, the group was complimented on their polite behavior, their promptness to time, and their adaptability to change.

Being a principal, I have a lot of thankful moments and this week will be a lasting memory. Our students met Tammy Baldwin, toured our National Monuments, and participated in the wreath ceremony at the Arlington Cemetery.

Fall Conferences

We are looking forward to seeing everyone attend our fall conferences. We encourage your son/daughter to join as well to share their successes at Lane.

Lane conferences are Oct 9th and 18th from 4:30 pm - 8:00 pm. Conferences will be held in the cafeteria and the auxiliary gym. Please, enter via the cafe door. We will have Forward Exam results available for pick up and a station to help access Skyward if needed.

When meeting with staff, please be mindful of others waiting and try to keep the conference to five minutes with each teacher. Feel free to set up a phone conversation or an additional appointment if needed. The goal of the conference is to check on progress and make a connection with our staff.

At Lane, some of the staff travel between buildings. Please, see the available times listed.

Wisconsin Forward Exam

The Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction has released Forward Exam results by proficiency level for schools in the state of Wisconsin. This was the third year of the online Forward Exam and the fourth year of the DLM, given to students with significant cognitive disabilities. The Forward and DLM assessments were administered between in the spring of 2018, to 373,100 public school and 15,900 private choice school students enrolled in grades


While this is only one measure of individual student and school performance data, we are pleased overall with results which continue to show, even on this far more rigorous test than years' past, that our students are strengthening performance and growing over time. This data, coupled with classroom assessment data from teacher observation and student work samples, help ensure learning is personalized to each child's needs. For the district, this data helps us evaluate our programs and services to make sure that we continue to support the kind of knowledge and skills needed to be successful and future ready.
