Does Your School Measure up?
The Wyoming Department of Education has created handy website to display the report cards for every district and school in the state.
“Transparency and public engagement are two of the main tenets of the Every Student Succeeds Act,” said State Superintendent of Public Instruction Jillian Balow. “Our 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 the state.”
According to the state report card, the graduation rate is just over 80 percent. The average ACT Score is 19.5. Academically, 53 percent of Wyoming students are proficient in English Language Arts and 49 percent are proficient in Math.
Since this is the first year for the State Report Card, data is somewhat limited.
At Thunder Basin High School enrollment is 1,076 students and the school has 68 teachers. Academically, 44 percent of students are proficient in English Language Arts and 39 percent are proficient in math. The average ACT score at Thunder Basin is 19.5.
At Campbell County High School enrollment is 1,103 students and the school has 77 teachers. Academically, 32 percent of students are proficient in English Language Arts and 34 percent are proficient in math. The average ACT score and Campbell County is 17.7
The State Report Card from the Wyoming Department of Education is a yearly requirement of the Every Student Succeeds Act and will be updated each year.
