An Eventful Two Weeks

Wyoming Department of Education > Superintendent's Update > An Eventful Two Weeks

Dear Superintendents,

Week two at the WDE has been very eventful, what with the legislative session opening. We kicked off the week with the State of the State address on Monday, where Governor Mark Gordon recognized Wyoming’s 2022 Teacher of the Year, Brittany Montgomery, a first-grade teacher at Harrison Elementary in Green River:


The Legislature will begin their work on the budget next week. Currently, the budget contains a single-year external cost adjustment for educational materials and energy, which would equal a $10.4 million increase in the School Foundation Program for 2022-23.

Lastly, the WDE, along with several of our education partners, has created the K-3 Literacy Guidance Framework for teachers to use in their classrooms. Please share this framework widely with your individual educators: Literacy Guidance Framework

There are no memos this week.
