CHEYENNE  – The Wyoming State Board of Career and Technical Education (SBCTE) and Wyoming State Board of Education (SBE) will hold its next virtual meeting at 8:30 a.m. on September 15, 2022.

The board will initially convene as the SBCTE and receive an update on statewide Career and Technical Education (CTE) activities. The board also will hear presentations from CTE teachers who have completed professional development externships as part of the state’s Perkins V plan.

Upon reconvening as the SBE, Susan Patrick, President and CEO of the Aurora Institute, will provide the SBE with insights on competency-based education and how these approaches may support the work of the Profile of a Graduate.

School accountability determinations will be presented by the Wyoming Department of Education (WDE). Due to disruptions during the COVID-19 pandemic, schools have not received updated school performance ratings for two years. Performance ratings this fall are based on the 2021-22 school year. WDE staff also will provide an update on the Statewide System of Support, which  provides assistance to schools in addressing low performance ratings.

The board will discuss proposed revisions to the state health standards with specific discussion around the inclusion of mental wellness and suicide prevention awareness.

All SBE meetings are open to the public. To attend the virtual meeting, register in advance here.   After registering, participants will receive a confirmation email containing information about joining the meeting.

Materials for board meetings are available on BoardDocs. Previous meetings’ minutes and materials may be viewed through the board’s website. Follow the SBE  on Facebook and Twitter.
