UW LAB SCHOOL NEWS

Pilot Wyoming School Performance Report

The UW Lab School is proud of our students' achievements and the exceeding expectations rating on the Pilot School Performance Report. Four rating categories of exceeding expectations, meeting expectations, partially meeting expectations, and not meeting expectations were assigned to each school. Schools were rated using a combination of achievement, growth, equity, and participation, based on test scores from PAWS reading, writing, and science. As a school, we will continue to look at multiple performance indicators across broad educational goals. We strive to identify improvement areas and build upon strengths to sustain high levels of achievement in all areas.

For additional information about school performance, the 2013 UW Lab School Accountability Report is available on our school web site. This annual report provides a great deal of information including: student and staff accomplishments; highlights related to the school's participation in the National League of Democratic Schools; information in the area of Coordinated School Health summarizing school opportunities related to nutrition, physical activity, and other factors promoting health and wellness; academic achievement results from a variety of measures including PAWS, MAP, and ACT Explore; and progress towards school improvement goals. This report is part of our efforts to expand the way we approach school accountability, as well as the way it is communicated.

Ellbogen Meritorious Schools Award

Mary Garland, president of the John P. Ellbogen Foundation, presented the UW Lab School with the Ellbogen Meritorious Schools Award at an all-school assembly on October 4, 2013.  Thirty-one percent of the school's teachers have accomplished National Board Certification (NBC), one of the highest credentials in teaching.  Mrs. McLaughlin and Mr. Lilley's 6th grade Social Studies class took a prominent leadership role in planning and facilitating the assembly.  The 6th graders also presented information about the unique 126 year history of the school.  We sincerely appreciate the special guests that joined our celebration including; Mary Garland (the Ellbogen Foundation), Chris Rothfuss (Albany County Senator), Kay Persichitte (College of Education Dean), Audrey Kleinsasser (UW School University Partnership and WNBCI Board Member), Mike Hamel (ACSD1 Assistant Superintendent), Bob Besler (ACSD1 School Board), Lawrence Perea (ACSD1 School Board), Julie Radosevich (ACSD1 School Board), and many of our wonderful UW Lab School parents.  The assembly provided a great opportunity to recognize the accomplishment of the NBC's and all of the school's outstanding staff!
