WDE Seeks Public Comment on Chapter 3 Rules on Informal Reviews of School Performance Ratings and Citizen Petitions of WDE Rules

CHEYENNE – The Wyoming Department of Education (WDE) seeks public comment on proposed revisions to Chapter 3 rules concerning parameters under which a school district may seek an informal review of its annual school performance ratings. The revisions to the rules are a result of the passage of House Enrolled Act 43 in 2019.

An informal review will examine whether the school’s overall performance rating was improperly computed and reported, and examine whether the school was unable to administer the statewide assessment for good cause.

Chapter 3 also includes a new Section 4, outlining the process whereby a citizen may petition a review of current education rules in accordance with W.S. 16-3-106.

The public comment period on the proposed rule revisions will be open from July 17 – September 9, 2019. Comments can be submitted online or mailed to:

Wyoming Department of Education
Attn: Julie Magee
122 West 25th Street, Suite E200
Cheyenne, WY 82002

All public comments will be recorded verbatim, including the submitter’s name and city of residence, on the Secretary of State website as part of the rules promulgation process.
