Education Accountability

Education accountability in Wyoming is handled at both the state and federal level.

According to the Wyoming Department of Education, state accountability is defined in the Wyoming Accountability Education Act of 2013, which is a law that takes into account measures specifically related to educational goals in the state. Federal accountability is in the process of transitioning from the requirements of “No Child Left Behind” to a locally controlled Wyoming accountability system that meets federal guidelines defined in the Every Student Succeeds Act that was passed in 2015.

Sheridan County School District #2 Superintendent Craig Dougherty says that accountability within the district is a pillar of their success.

Dougherty talks about how reaching every student is a collaborative process throughout the district.

Dougherty said that they are always looking at different ways the district can improve and continue to be successful in providing an education for each and every student that is enrolled within District #2.
