It was another busy week on the Wyoming road and a privilege to visit schools (with better travel weather this week).
Also this week, WDE hosted a workshop called the “Importance of Indian Education for All.” Teachers were trained on how to integrate new standards into Social Studies and other subjects. Schools have three full years to implement Indian Education for All content and performance standards.
There are pertinent memos this week including one about next steps for WDE and school districts after the legislative session. We are working to schedule a debrief call for superintendents to “attend,” as we have in the past. In the meantime, please contact WDE staff with questions.
There is also a memo about 21st Century Learning grants (21CCLC). Substantial grant awards to schools and other entities are available to build out a variety of activities including extended learning, computer science, and more.
Memos to be released on Monday:
- 2019-046: 21CCLC: Upcoming Cohort 13 Intent to Apply
- 2019-047: Fall S5S Conference and Call for Proposals
- 2019-048: Submission and Approval of Leader Evaluation Systems
- 2019-049: Important Information on Education Legislation
