Fewer Wyoming schools meet Adequate Yearly Progress

Oct 14, 2013

The results of Adequate Yearly Progress for the last school year have been released and fewer schools met the required standard. 

A-Y-P is a federal measure of achievement that's determined through A-C-T data and the Wyoming Proficiency Assessment.  Schools that score poorly on A-Y-P can lose the ability to decide how they spend federal funds. 

David Holbrook of the Wyoming Department of Education says that those interested in how their schools fared can look at the Department’s website.

“You can see which groups are doing well and which groups aren’t in your school.  You can see where there are areas that need improvement, those types of things.”

Almost 49 percent of Wyoming Schools met AYP, below last year’s number of 58 percent.  79- percent of state school districts met A-Y-P.
