NAEP Results

Dear Superintendents,

Wyoming made a big splash with the release of NAEP scores this week. In addition to consistently performing above average in grades 4, 8 in both math and reading, Wyoming is closing achievement gaps for economically disadvantaged and special education students. Students across the state are taking advantage of educational opportunities that are a result of equitable and adequate funding. Here is a link to the press release for Wyoming NAEP scores:

The WY-TOPP summative assessment window opens next week. Our staff, AIR, and your coordinators will all have resources to provide technical assistance as needed.
