USED Plan to Identify Schools for Improvement in the fall of 2022

The U.S. Department of Education (USED) granted Wyoming’s request for a waiver from federal assessment, accountability and school identification requirements due to school building closures and educational disruption from the COVID-19 pandemic.  Subsequently, the State Board of Education (SBE) used their authority under W.S. 21-2-204(d)(vi) to grant an exception to the state’s accountability requirements for all Wyoming schools, for the 2020-21 school year, due to the inability to administer the statewide assessment for two consecutive years in order to calculate growth.  As a result, no accountability determinations were made for the 2020-21 school year and Wyoming schools continue to hold the School Performance Rating and any federal identifications for support they received for the 2018-19 school year.

USED waived the requirement to identify schools for improvement in 2020 and 2021 due to the COVID-19 pandemic.  Department officials say they will not waive the requirement for states to identify schools for comprehensive, targeted, and additional targeted support and improvement in fall 2022.  United States Department of Education Guidance
