CASPER, Wyo. — A series of meetings to answer questions about the state’s education accountability efforts will be held in five Wyoming cities starting next week, the Wyoming Department of Education announced Thursday.

The meetings will focus on answering questions and collecting feedback about implementation of the Wyoming Accountability in Education Act, a bill passed by the Wyoming Legislature in 2011 to set accountability performance benchmarks for schools and school administrators.

State education officials specializing in student, teacher and district assessment and the state’s accountability model will make presentations at each of the public meetings. Their presentations will be followed by an open question-and-answer period at each meeting.

The first set of Regional Summit on Educational Accountability meetings will make a stop in Casper at 6 p.m. Tuesday in the Natrona County School District’s Central Services Facility at 970 Glenn Road.

Another group of meetings will take place in the same locations after a panel of 27 teachers, administrators and members of the higher education and business communities set score cut-offs to label Wyoming schools as exceeding expectations, meeting expectations or below expectations in mid-September.
