2018-2019 School Performance Reports
How does Sweetwater #1 use the SPRs?
Sweetwater#1 uses the information from the School Performance Reports (SPRs) to drive school improvement, celebrate success and determine supports needed for student success. School improvement teams meet to determine areas of strength (to celebrate and continue implementation) and areas in need of improvement. The school conducts an in-depth data analysis, determines specific areas to focus on for improvement and SMART goals are set. Action plans are written and implemented by staff. District staff meet with principals and improvement teams to monitor progress and provide support.

What is Accountability?
An accountability system provides information about the quality of education received by students to help determine which schools are doing well and which schools are in need of assistance.
Wyoming is held accountable at both the state and federal level. State accountability is defined in the Wyoming Accountability in Education Act (WAEA) of 2013 relating specifically to educational goals in Wyoming. Federal accountability is currently transitioning from No Child Left Behind (NCLB) to a locally controlled Wyoming accountability system that meets federal guidelines, Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA).
