2012-2013 Accountability Workbook
This page contains information about both federal and state accountability. For information specific to state accountability, please scroll to the bottom of this page.
Under NCLB, all states are required to make AYP determinations each year for every public school district and school in the state. Schools and districts are required to continually improve their students' achievement in reading or language arts and mathematics from year-to-year to match a federal mandate that all students are achieving at or above grade level by 2014.
NOTE: As a result of the Wyoming Legislature's actions that removed writing from the 2011-2012 PAWS testing, the U.S. Department of Education required Wyoming to recalculate its AYP targets; these revised targets are shown in the enclosed charts.
