Comprehensive Improvement Plans submitted to WDE

Below are links to the Comprehensive Improvement Plans of each of the six Platte County #1 schools. These plans outline the goals and efforts to increase student achievement to meet the Wyoming Accountability in Education Act as set by the legislature. These plans will be submitted for review to the Wyoming Department of Education. Each school will continue to update these plans as a part of our continuous improvement process to help us “Reach the PEAK.” There are many opportunities for staff and community members to be involved in helping us improve. If you are interested, contact a building principal or take advantage of the many opportunities to provide feedback on our efforts.

WHS Culinary Arts and Baking Students Compose an E-Cookbook

 

The Culinary Arts and Professional Baking students at Wheatland High School embarked on writing their own electronic cookbook throughout the 2015-16 school year.  Mrs. Hadley and Mrs. de Ryk wrote a grant to purchase the necessary technology equipment to make this project happen.  The students recorded the recipes, took pictures of the prepared dishes and wrote recipe reviews for each recipe included in the cookbook.  There are even a couple of short demonstration videos included in the e-cookbook.  These cookbooks were then published using iBooks Author.   If you want to have a FREE copy of this cookbook, click on the link:  https://itunes.apple.com/us/book/book-title/id1122661472?ls=1&mt=11.  This link will open in the iBooks app on any Macbook, iPad, or iPhone.
