The recent 2020-2021 school year in Wyoming was an unusual one for educators and new state-wide testing results suggest the impact it had on students was minimal.

The Wyoming Department of Education says overall the latest Wyoming Test of Proficiency and Progress (WYTOPP) numbers for the recent school year (2020-2021), were down by less than 5% compared to the 2018-19 school year.

Given the circumstances with the COVID pandemic, and with some students having to attend classes virtually, the Department adds that those numbers are within acceptable parameters.

Charles Auzqui is the President of Wyoming Association Of School Administrators and the Superintendent of the Johnson County School District.

He says the WYTOPP results are one of many data pieces that the state uses to drive instruction within school districts

He adds that credit goes to teachers and parents for making sure students are getting the education that’s needed.

“We stayed even at this point, knowing what we went through and what teachers had to learn both to teach virtually and with brick and motar. This is a great starting point for the new normal. We talked about what normal looks like, well normal isn’t coming back, so we got a new normal as far as where districts are and how we’re approaching and teaching kids.”
