CHEYENNE – The Wyoming Department of Education (WDE) is developing a list of prescreened expanded learning programs in order to increase awareness of these opportunities. Nonprofit organizations in Wyoming can be included on the list by submitting a profile survey to the WDE.
Under Title IV, Part B of the Every Student Succeeds Act, these programs must have a record of success in running or working with before and after school or summer recess programs, or be in partnership with such a program to be listed. To meet the requirements for a record of success, organizations must demonstrate that they:
- Operate as a nonprofit in good standing in Wyoming;
- Have a minimum five years of experience operating and/or implementing expanded learning programs outside the regular school day for school-age children and youth in Wyoming;
- Provide a statement of success that describes the organization’s quantitative or qualitative measures of success in local programs for at least the past two years.
Organizations that meet the above conditions, and are interested in supporting the work of after school and summer learning, are invited to submit the profile survey by March 6, 2018.
This request for information will not result in a contract with the WDE, nor does the listing represent an endorsement. The WDE will verify “good standing” status through the Wyoming Secretary of State’s website when the profile survey is submitted, and periodically thereafter. All eligible prescreened organizations will remain on the WDE website for two years, unless a request to be removed is received from the organization.
