Reviewing the Cowboy Code of Ethics

Wyoming Department of Education > Superintendent's Update > Reviewing the Cowboy Code of Ethics

Dear Superintendents,

It’s been an inspiring week. I attended the Wyoming Association of Career and Technical Educators (WACTE) conference and the Wyoming Custodians Association conference. If ever there were a time to reflect on the Cowboy Code of Ethics, it is now. Wyoming educators, students, and families have ridden for the brand like never before over the last eighteen months and exemplify all that makes Wyoming, well, Wyoming. I will be sharing the stories of hope, perseverance, hard work, passion, and leadership across the state and nation.



  • Twenty- eight states, including Wyoming, submitted state ARP plans to the U.S. Department of Education by the June 7 deadline. The plans are posted here.
  • On June 15 the National Center for Education Statistics (NCES) posted a blog stating that national spending for public schools has increased for the sixth consecutive year in the 2018-19 school year. To learn more, click here.
  • Congress voted this week to make Juneteenth a federal holiday, and President Biden signed it into law. The U.S. Office of Personnel Management announced that most federal employees would observe the holiday on Friday, June 18.
