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.

But you’d be wrong. The last total lunar eclipse visible in Wyoming was way back in 2009, if I’m not mistaken. So I’ve been looking […]

  • Back to normal at the trap range - April 17, 2014
    By some strange luck, I shot really well last week in our trap league. But last night, I didn’t do so well. Not even close. The thing about shooting trap is that you’re bound to have good rounds once in a while. Those good nights give you hope that you’re improving. For some people, that […]
