  • WY-TOPP & WY-ALT: Testing & Accountability 

    The Wyoming Department of Education (WDE) has canceled WY-ALT and WY-TOPP summative testing for the school year 2019-20, and no formal accountability determinations will be made for the 2019-20 school year.

    The U.S. Department of Education (USED) granted Wyoming a waiver on March 20 from certain federal assessment and accountability requirements in light of the widespread school closures due to the spread of the COVID-19 virus. The WDE is taking public comment on this waiver through April 20, 2020.

    Contact Jessica Steinbrenner at 307-777-8568 or with any questions on assessments and Sean McInerney at 307-777-8752 or with any questions on accountability.
