Wyoming Releases New School Progress Reports
CASPER, Wyo. (AP) — The Wyoming Department of Education says 139 schools and six school districts in the state failed to meet federal education goals last year.
The federal No Child Left Behind Act sets so-called adequate yearly progress benchmarks for schools to meet in order for all students to be proficient in language and math by 2014.
The Wyoming Department of Education had released preliminary results in September. But those results hadn't accounted for one provision, and the agency had to review the results and issue a new report.
The Associated Press reports that the new report was issued last week.
Of the 139 Wyoming schools that missed their goals, 80 missed the target for the first year and 59 have missed in consecutive years.
