Cheyenne School Officials Pleased With ACT Scores
Laramie County School District #1 officials are pleased with the scores students in the district achieved in the most recent round of ACT testing.
Steve Newton, LCSD#1 Director of Instruction, says the average test scores for the district went up by a full half point. He says that while that may not sound like a lot, the national and state average ACT scores don't usually change much at all, so a half point increase is actually quite good.
He says that when LCSD#1 is taken out of the state numbers, the local numbers are actually about a point above the average score in the rest of Wyoming. the test is given to all high school juniors in Wyoming, including roughly 1,000 students in LCSD#1.
Among Cheyenne Central students math reading and composite scores were up, while English and science scores were the same as last year.
