District/Board‎ > ‎Board Goals‎ > ‎


Total number of students proficient or advanced on the PAWS assessment (grades K-8 & 11)

Johnson County students will demonstrate improved writing test scores and advancement toward and above writing proficiency as measured by annual district assessments.

We believe writing is a critical skill for college & career readiness. The state of Wyoming did not administer a state-wide writing assessment in 2012. We will monitor our progress on this goal with a variety of district assessments.
