Summer Food Program Feeds Kids For Free

With summer right around the corner, it’s time to think about keeping children healthy while school is out.  Platte County School District #1 will be providing free meals to children during this summer.  These meals will be made available to all children of school age or younger regardless of race, color, national origin, sex, or disability, and there is no discrimination in the course and preparation of this meal service.  Please click here to view more details of this program.

Comprehensive Improvement Plans submitted to WDE

Below are links to the Comprehensive Improvement Plans of each of the six Platte County #1 schools. These plans outline the goals and efforts to increase student achievement to meet the Wyoming Accountability in Education Act as set by the legislature. These plans will be submitted for review to the Wyoming Department of Education. Each school will continue to update these plans as a part of our continuous improvement process to help us “Reach the PEAK.” There are many opportunities for staff and community members to be involved in helping us improve. If you are interested, contact a building principal or take advantage of the many opportunities to provide feedback on our efforts.

Keep In Touch With Your Child's School Information

Staying in touch and informed on your son or daughters education is very important. Platte County SD 1 uses the Powerschool student information system as an easy, efficient way for parents to get a wide variety of information. From grades and attendance to test scores, Powerschool offers a simple online option for parents to track their students achievement.

PCSD#1 Releases AYP Results

The Platte County #1 district and school Federal accountability results were released on November 6, 2015.  The Federal No Child Left Behind (NCLB) Law that was passed in 2001 required that states set student achievement targets so that every student would score proficient or advanced in reading and math on state achievement tests by spring 2014. Wyoming uses the results of the Proficiency Assessment for Wyoming Students (PAWS) and the ACT test to determine if schools, including student sub-groups, met the achievement target. This is referred to as making “Adequate Yearly Progress” (AYP). The NCLB law identifies schools that missed the achievement target, even if it is for one sub-group, as being in school improvement.

The nationwide achievement target for NCLB for the Spring of 2015 was that all (100%) of students would be proficient in reading and math.  The targets are measured for districts and individual schools.  As a district we failed to have 100% of our students meet AYP targets at the elementary, middle school, or high school levels.  As a school district, PCSD #1 is considered to be in Year 1 in terms of NCLB District Improvement. PCSD #1 and 15 other Wyoming school districts failed to meet AYP targets in math or reading for the first time.

"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."
