CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) — A legislative committee is scheduled to hear a staff report on the Wyoming Department of Education’s performance on implementing state education reforms.

A preliminary draft criticizes the agency for falling short of its responsibilities in part because it has lost too many key personnel in the last couple of years.

Over the last few years, lawmakers have worked to overhaul the state’s K-12 public schools after some questioned whether Wyoming was getting adequate results for the amount of money it is investing each year in public education.

The Legislature has passed laws to establish a system measuring progress of student academic growth and grade public schools on how well they are educating their students.

The state Education Department is a key part of implementing many aspects of the reform.
