(Wyo.)-State Education Panel Prepares School Rating System
CASPER, Wyo. (ASSOCIATED PRESS) - A panel of educators and community members is meeting in Casper this week to prepare a proposed system by which the state will hold public schools accountable for student learning.
State law requires that such a system go into effect for the 2013-14 school year.
The Wyoming Accountability in Education Act requires a system to categorize schools and provide resources and support as needed. School ratings will be based on three indicators: achievement, growth, and college and career readiness.
The State Board of Education plans to submit a report based on the panel's work on Oct. 15. The Wyoming Legislature's Select Committee on Statewide Accountability will then review the report.
