States Leading

Dear Superintendents,

Several national education organizations have partnered on the “States Leading” campaign (#statesleading) to highlight education efforts. The campaign is also an opportunity to underscore how states, under the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA), have leveraged their increased authority and responsibility to improve student outcomes and and meet the needs of all learners.

This week Wyoming’s Computer Science initiative was highlighted nationally. Here is the blog post:

Primarily through social media, our WDE team loves to highlight how schools in Wyoming are leading with your your efforts, successes, and celebrations. Please send articles, photos, blogs, or posts our way to thom.gabrukiewicz@wyo.gov so we can share.

Finally, we are settling into our new offices in the Herschler Building. Thank you for your patience as we have tried to continue business as usual despite the moving upheaval.
