Wyoming Schools Recovering Post-Pandemic
School Performance Data has been released by the Wyoming Department of Education and Superintendant Megan Degenfelder. Trends show an increase in school performance after the pandemic shutdown in spring 2020.
Despite the post-pandemic improvements, statistics are still lagging behind pre-pandemic progress. For the 2022-2023 school year, 26 percent of schools improved their performance rating. Fifty-three percent of schools remained in the same performance rating and 21 percent of schools declined.
Full school performance rating data can be found here. A three-rating period snapshot by district can be found here. A Parent and Community Member Overview, outlining the accountability process and additional current results can be found here.
For Albany County School District No. 1, statistics by school and category are as follows. Changes in performance levels are reflected in parenthesis. School performance data was not collected for the 2019-20 and 2020-21 school years.
