CHEYENNE, Wyo. - About half of students enrolled in the new Wyoming Virtual School tested far below average on the statewide assessment.

As for the other half, no one knows.

Results from this year's Proficiency Assessments for Wyoming Students, or PAWS test, have been out for a month. But the Campbell County School District, which runs the Wyoming Virtual School, hasn't compiled PAWS scores for half of the school's students in grades 3-6 - those outside Campbell County.

The state Department of Education also hasn't compiled scores for the virtual school.

Students in the K-6 school are essentially homeschooled. The Campbell County School District says its local students in the virtual school's grades 3-6 scored below average in reading, writing and math.
