CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) - The Wyoming Department of Education reports that more schools in the state are exceeding expectations under a new comprehensive accountability system.

The agency on Monday released school accountability results for the 2018-19 school year.

The results show that 56.1% of Wyoming traditional schools are meeting or exceeding expectations and 70.6% of Wyoming alternative schools are meeting or exceeding alternative school expectations.

For the first time, alternative schools also received a rating this year based on their performance on a different scoring model.

State Superintendent of Public Instruction Jillian Balow says state and local support is proving effective in helping schools improve student outcomes.



School performance is evaluated based on a combination of student performance indicators.
