PCSD#1 Releases AYP Results

The Platte County #1 district and school Federal accountability results were released on November 6, 2015.  The Federal No Child Left Behind (NCLB) Law that was passed in 2001 required that states set student achievement targets so that every student would score proficient or advanced in reading and math on state achievement tests by spring 2014. Wyoming uses the results of the Proficiency Assessment for Wyoming Students (PAWS) and the ACT test to determine if schools, including student sub-groups, met the achievement target. This is referred to as making “Adequate Yearly Progress” (AYP). The NCLB law identifies schools that missed the achievement target, even if it is for one sub-group, as being in school improvement.

The nationwide achievement target for NCLB for the Spring of 2015 was that all (100%) of students would be proficient in reading and math.  The targets are measured for districts and individual schools.  As a district we failed to have 100% of our students meet AYP targets at the elementary, middle school, or high school levels.  As a school district, PCSD #1 is considered to be in Year 1 in terms of NCLB District Improvement. PCSD #1 and 15 other Wyoming school districts failed to meet AYP targets in math or reading for the first time.

"Running for the First Time Since the 70’s"

On Tuesday, Nov 17th, there was excitement in the WHS Small Engine shop for many of the students.  Landon Utter has been working on a very old Montgomery Ward motor attached to a sickle bar mower head.  After some research the Industrial Technology class established that the motor was built between 1949 and 1955.  Landon was able to clean up the engine and get it running for the first time since its last use back in the 70’s.  He still has some work to do on the motor to get it all back to complete working condition, but he hit a big mile stone Tuesday by getting the motor running.  Congratulations to Landon!

What is American Education Week?

American Education Week—November 16-20, 2015—presents all Americans with a wonderful opportunity to celebrate public education and honor individuals who are making a difference in ensuring that every child receives a quality education. This year’s theme is "Great Public Schools: A Basic Right and Our Responsibility".

The National Education Association was one of the creators and original sponsors of American Education Week. Distressed that 25 percent of the country's World War I draftees were illiterate and 9 percent were physically unfit, representatives of the NEA and the American Legion met in 1919 to seek ways to generate public support for education. The conventions of both organizations subsequently adopted resolutions of support for a national effort to raise public awareness of the importance of education. In 1921, the NEA Representative Assembly in Des Moines, Iowa, called for designation of one week each year to spotlight education. In its resolution, the NEA called for: "An educational week ... observed in all communities annually for the purpose of informing the public of the accomplishments and needs of the public schools and to secure the cooperation and support of the public in meeting those needs."

The first observance of American Education Week occurred December 4-10, 1921, with the NEA and American Legion as the cosponsors. A year later, the then U.S. Office of Education joined the effort as a cosponsor, and the PTA followed in 1938. Other co-sponsors are the U.S. Department of Education and national organizations including the National PTA, the American Legion, the American Legion Auxiliary, the American Association of School Administrators, the National School Boards Association, the American Federation of Teachers, the American School Counselor Association, the Council of Chief State School Officers, the National School Public Relations Association, the National Association of State Boards of Education, the National Association of Elementary School Principals, and the National Association of Secondary School Principals.

American Education Week is always celebrated the week prior to the week of Thanksgiving. Thank a teacher today!

Wheatland Bulldogs Win Class 2A Title

On Friday, Nov 11th, the Wheatland Bulldogs became the Class 2A Title Champions.Trailing Glenrock by eight in the second quarter of the Wyoming State High School Class 2A State Championship, Wheatland senior Kyle Pollock returned a short punt 19 yards to the Glenrock 15. Four plays later, on fourth-and-8 from the Herders' 13, Wheatland quarterback Daniel Chesser scrambled to avoid a sack and found Pollock in the end zone for a touchdown to get the Bulldogs on the board. "I saw Daniel rolling around the backside and I knew I just had to do my job and get open," Pollock said.  Wheatland added two second-half touchdowns to win its first state title since 1984 with a 22-8 victory at the University of Wyoming's War Memorial Stadium.  "We've had a great season on defense and our offense has been pretty good," Wheatland head coach Dusty Hudson said, "but our special teams have been a key part to our success. Congratulations to our Bulldogs!
