The Wyoming Department of Education (WDE) has released school accountability results for the 2018-19 school year.
State Superintendent of Public Instruction Jillian Balow said of the results–quote– “The results show improvement from 2017-18 to 2018-19 with more schools exceeding expectations and fewer schools partially or not meeting expectations. Deliberate state and local supports are proving effective in helping schools improve student outcomes.” End quote.
This is the second year schools have operated under a more stringent assessment based on state and federal accountability systems. The WY-TOPP assessment remains a key component for school districts.
Schools receive one of four School Performance Ratings–exceeding expectations–meeting expectations–partially meeting expectations or not meeting expectations.
Park County School District #6–specifically Cody High School received a rating of Partially Meeting Expectations. In Powell at Park County School District #1–Powell High School is Meeting Expectations. Within Washakie County–Worland High School received a rating of Meeting Expectations–while the Ten Sleep School–which serves K through 12 students–received a Partially Meeting Expectations rating.
