MADISON, WI (WTAQ) - It wasn't the bill most, on either side, working on school accountability wanted but the limited accountability measure that cleared the Senate earlier was passed by the Assembly on Thursday night.

It's now waiting for the Governor's approval. Walker was one of many who had hoped for a more expansive measure but he has indicated he will sign the bill as is. 

The legislation requires any school that takes public funds to have performance data and other information included on report cards as public record.
