Educator Survey Open Through February 26

The State Board of Education requests input from educators to identify possible impacts of the Proposed 2019 Wyoming Computer Science Content and Performance Standards on curriculum and instruction.

Input from educators will be gathered through an educator online survey through February 26, 2019.

 

Public Input Survey Open Through March 5

The Wyoming Department of Education will also collect input from stakeholders through a public online survey and regional meetings. The public survey is open through March 5, 2019.

Meetings will be held from 6-7:30 p.m. at the following locations:

  • February 25, Green River - SCSD #2 Central Admin. Office, 351 Monroe Avenue.
  • February 25, Buffalo - JCSD#1 Buffalo High School, 29891 Old Hwy 87.
  • February 26, Meeteetse - PCSD #16 School Building, 2107 Idaho Street.
  • February 26, Douglas - CCSD #1, Admin. Building, 615 Hamilton Street.
  • February 28, Cheyenne - LCSD #1, Storey Gym, 2811 House Avenue.

Each community meeting will start with a 20-minute presentation on the standards review process,
the review timeline, and a question-and-answer session. The remainder of the meeting is dedicated to collecting public input. A summary of the public input gathered during these meetings will be presented to the State Board of Education at its March meeting. If the Board moves to adopt the draft standards, an additional public comment period will follow before the new standards are adopted.
