"School Choice" &
"Supplemental Education Services"

No Child Left Behind or NCLB and mandates that states establish annual performance targets for students based upon state exams with the eventual goal of every child being proficient or advanced by 2014.  Wyoming uses the Proficiency Assessment for Wyoming Students (PAWS) and the ACT test to determine if students were meeting or exceeding grade level expectations. Based on these scores, schools may need to offer "School Choice" and/or "Supplemental Education Services."

"Supplemental Education Services" information click here.

NCLB Results for 2014 Released

The results of the federal accountability system for schools and districts were released in November 2014.  This system is often referred to as the No Child Left Behind Law or Adequate Yearly Progress (AYP).  The NCLB student achievement target for 2014 PAWS or ACT tests were that all of students (100%) would score proficient or advanced in reading and math.  As a district we, along with 15 other districts, failed to meet AYP targets at the elementary, middle school, or high school levels for the first time since NCLB was enacted. We are considered to be in the warning year for district improvement.

We take these results very seriously and continue to work to improve student learning and achievement for each of our students.  Please follow the links below to learn more about NCLB and our district and school results.

WHS Races 2 Achieve

As a way to implement STEM into science and math curriculum, the Wheatland High School Physics and Intensified Trigonometry classes joined together in a project called Race 2 Achieve. This program is sponsored by the National Guard. Students learned how to apply STEM skills to design, develop , and construct mousetrap cars and modify them to be the fastest!

There were 6 race teams of students who had to first assemble the mousetrap car and run test trials. Then, the class was given a different objective to meet each day which included: adjustments to the body and engine, tires and alignment, friction from the track surfaces and weight distribution. Data was recorded, analyzed, and utilized for improvements every step of the way. Students also participated in team debriefs where they discussed the successes and failures of each modification.

The culminating event was a race to see who had the fastest car. The track was 9 meters of wax paper, a 2 meter long pit stop, and 9 meters of plastic wrap. The team had to get their car to stop in the pit stop area. There were time penalties for leaving the 1 meter wide track or not stopping in the pit stop area. Then each team had three official race times. The racing team of 2 Chicks and David prevailed in the end with their car “Linda”! The team consisted of Samantha Britz, Ashley Hyche, and David Timmerman. For more photos, please click on our Facebook icon.
