Standardized Scores Improve Here

Not unlike their peers across the state, Teton County School District #1 students did better on this year’s Proficiency Assessments for Wyoming Students, or PAWS testing than they did in previous years.  Last week, the Wyoming Department of Education released the results from this year’s testing.  During a Casper news conference last week, State Superintendent of Public Instruction Cindy Hill told reporters that Wyoming students had performed better this year at every grade level.  Reached by telephone yesterday, vacationing Teton County Superintendent Pam Shea said in particular, the areas the district had been focusing on improved. At the same time, Shea says there are specific areas of concern that remain for the district to address. Still, considering the big picture, Shea says the results show an improving trend in students’ achievement and she is happy to see that.  PAWS exams measure the performance of students in grades three through eight and again in their Junior years for math, reading and writing.  Students are measured for their performance in science in fourth, eighth and 11th grades.

  • A hunt with no disasters isn’t as much fun - October 24, 2014
    Not long ago, I saw a message on one of the hunting blogs I like to read. The writer wanted hunters to send in accounts of disasters they’d had in the field. I bet he got swamped with emails. Every hunter I know has had at least one calamity in the woods. If you hunt, […]

  • My new used truck may be the death of me - October 23, 2014
    Not long ago, I brought home a 1994 Ford F-250. It’s not much to look at, but it’s even worse to drive. About the only things it has going for it are that it’s mechanically sound, and it’s technically a vehicle. I’ve named it Clunk, for good reason. When you shift it into either drive […]
