Wyoming Education Department Offers New State Report Card

Students in all three of Sheridan County's school districts beat state averages in proficiency in English language arts and math.

That's according to a new state report card created by the Wyoming Department of Education and now available online at wyomingmeasuresup.com.

The State Report Card is a requirement of the federally mandated Every Student Succeeds Act.

Jillian Balow, who's state superintendent of public instruction, said transparency and public engagement are two of the main tenets of the Every Student Succeeds Act.

She said Wyoming's state report card gives everyone the ability to easily find information on their school and see how it compares to other schools in their district and across Wyoming. Information posted on the report card is from the 2017-2018 school year.

According to the information posted, students in Wyoming's 355 schools statewide averaged 53 percent proficiency in English language arts and 49 percent proficiency in math.

Sheridan County School District 2, which is the city of Sheridan and Story Elementary, averaged 75 percent proficiency in English language arts and 72 percent in math, while District 1 averaged 58 percent in English language arts and 57 percent in math.

District 1 operates the schools in Big Horn, Ranchester and Dayton.

School District 3, Arvada/Clearmont, averaged 55 to 59 percent in English language arts and 50 to 54 percent in math.
