The Wyoming State Board of Education met earlier this week in Sheridan. One of the items they addressed during their meeting was the recently passed legislation on accountability in education. Sheridan County School District One Superintendent Sue Belish says that things are starting to come together as far as addressing the legislation.
Belish indicated that she was selected Tuesday to be the State Board of Education's representative on the advisory committee.
The Wyoming Accountability in Education Act will measure student performance and progress through PAWS testing. The Select and Advisory Committees are in charge of implementing the system that would hold under-performing schools accountable by imposing certain consequences if progress is not made to improve test scores.
