Revised Scoring Bodes Well For Teton County Schools

PAWS

The Wyoming Department of Education has told 139 schools in six of the states 48 districts that they have failed to meet federal education goals last year.  80 of those schools missed the goals for the first time and 59 have missed them two years in a row.  This comes after the department re-computed the results of the annual testing and issued a revised report.  The re-computation meant that Moran School which had been previously named among those that were non-compliant had, in fact, met all the standards while Colter and Davey Jackson Elementary Schools were only lagging in math achievement among the Hispanic and English language learning students.  ELL Students in Jackson Hole Middle School and Summit High School have still not entirely made the grade in language arts but have done satisfactorily in math.  The average yearly progress report is required under the federal “No Child Left Behind” law which mandates 100% proficiency among students by 2014.

  • Diapers weren’t a magic bullet for staying cool - July 25, 2014
    I promised you yesterday that I’d test a new product to see how well it works to keep you cool when the temperatures climb toward triple digits.   In case you missed it, yesterday I talked about seeing an ad on TV for a new type of training pants. The ad said, and I quote, […]
