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 lunar eclipse, and me without my camera - April 18, 2014
    Monday night, or more accurately early Tuesday morning, there was a total lunar eclipse. And being the experienced nature photographer I am, you’d think I was ready with my camera. 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 […]
