We'd like to give a "Shout Out!" to our staff. Washakie #1 has some great things going on in our district.
Our staff work hard to make sure our kids get off to a great start in Kindergarten and see to it that they cross the finish line as a WHS Graduate! Every step between those two milestones is a step towards successful adulthood.
When you get a chance, say "Thanks!" to our educators! They make a difference!
A WY-TOPP "Golf Score" is calculated by ranking every grade in every content area and adding the scores together. This gives us a way to compare ourselves to the rest of Wyoming’s school districts. Of note, Washakie #1 did an outstanding job!
Our schools make a difference!
In simple terms, we "Nailed it”!
Each spring Wyoming’s juniors take the ACT. Washakie #1 knocked the ACT test out of the park when compared to the 48 districts in Wyoming . . . !
Performing in the top third of Wyoming’s school districts is an outstanding accomplishment!
Zoom in on the graphic below. It’s worth a closer look!
Math is typically an area of excellence in Worland with many classes performing in the Top 25% of the state. In fact, Worland outperformed the state average in all but two grades. When we identify an area for improvement, school teams work collaboratively to set goals and develop action plans to improve.
WY-TOPP’s ELA assessment measures proficiency in Reading, Writing, Speaking and Listening. Washakie #1 starts strong with a dynamic K-2 focus on literacy that includes solid Tier I instruction and evidence-based interventions like Reading Recovery. Teachers are supported by Reading Specialists, trained paraeducators, and ongoing professional development. These combined efforts helped our students to perform 10th in the state in 3rd grade, steadily holding the line through 10th grade where they performed 8th in the state, and 11th grade where they performed 7th in the state on ACT Reading!
If you can read this, thank a Worland teacher!
Science is measured in Grades 4, 8, and 10. Our students’ performance exceeded the state average in every grade with our 8th graders knocking it out of the park by performing 5th in the State overall!
As we approach the holidays, we’d like to thank our staff for the hard work they do every day to give our students the best educational experience possible. We’d also like to thank our families and the entire Worland Community for the outstanding support you give to our students. Finally, we’d like to thank our students for their continuous efforts to be the best they can be!
At East Side, Mrs. Miller’s students confidently shout, “We can do hard things!” They hold a parade celebrating every Kindergartner learning ALL their letters and sounds.
Another round of state assessments- but more importantly, another parade! This time a parade for our seniors to walk the hallways of every school in their caps and gowns. The applause, the smiles, the “high fives” and “fist bumps,” the hugs from former teachers, all in celebration of a JOB WELL DONE.
WARRIOR PRIDE! It’s just who we are!
Wyoming uses a “lagging indicator” to report Graduation Rates statewide. The 2021 Graduation Rate for Washakie #1 was 80.2%
