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.

"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."
