Employee vacations, a new school to plan and other factors have prevented the Johnson County School District from analyzing, comparing and compiling data from the Proficiency Assessments for Wyoming Students, or PAWS, released by the Wyoming Department of Education last week.
District Superintendant Dr. Rod Kessler explains why the district has been so busy.
Kessler said he isn't getting too excited about the first glance at the data, even though it looks good, because experience has taught him that it takes a few weeks of studying the information to determine how accurate it is.
He will wait a few weeks until their personnel returns and can run the information and compile comparison reports before drawing any conclusions.
Although the data has not been dissected, Kessler said his first scan of the information looks good for the district.
Once the data has been compiled and processed, Kessler said it will be presented to the school district board and then to the individual schools.
