The proposed standards provide for 11 standards in five disciplines: dance, media arts, music, theatre, and visual arts.

The changes were developed by a review committee of 30 members, including educators, business members, community members, and a parent.


Standards Implementation

We will be implementing new academic standards over the next few years. Math and science content and performance 2018 standards will be implemented in 2021–2022. Social studies revisions of standards will be fully implemented beginning 2021–2022. Computer science standards will be fully implemented beginning 2022–2023. Extended math and extended science will be fully implemented by the beginning of 2023–2024.

Science Performance Assessment Task Development

The science performance assessment task development is a professional learning series across Wyoming school districts. WDE, SMTC, and Platte CSD #2 are sponsors. 

We are excited to offer a virtual professional learning series for kindergarten through twelfth science teachers around the state. This series will support educators in networking to create, pilot, and refine science performance assessment tasks. 

The end result will include a repository of WY-based, standards-aligned science assessments that will be accessible to all teachers in WY. 

Participating educators can receive $400 for their participation. Space is limited, so apply today!
