(Gillette, Wyo.) Today, the Wyoming Department of Education released the Spring 2016 Proficiency Assessments for Wyoming Students (PAWS) and alternate assessments in reading and mathematics for students in grades 3 through 8, and in science for grades 4 and 8. Out of all students tested in Campbell County School District #1, most grades excelled at reading and were proficient or advanced at the subject: [image: reading.png] Fourth graders in Campbell County seem to excel in all subjects, with what looks like a drop off in advanced scores after 5th grade.

The biggest increase in scores took place in seventh grade math, which had a 6.0 percent increase to 49.4 percent of students scoring proficient or advanced. Campbell County's sixth graders actually performed slightly better in terms of advanced scores. Other statewide increases were seen in fourth grade reading and fifth grade math. "These positive strides are the result of some great work from our schools, teachers, parents, and students," said State Superintendent Jillian Balow. "We’ve seen high commitment to not only align curriculum with standards, but to go above and beyond where possible. Based on the efforts we’ve seen from school districts to learn from each other and take advantage of the system of support, it’s obvious that our kids come first in Wyoming."
