Charter Schools

The Wyoming State Board of Education reviews and votes on charter school appeals. Citizens can learn more and share their point of view by attending local charter school presentations.

The Board of Cooperative Educational Services (BOCES)

The State Board of Education approves any agreement to form a board of cooperative educational services among districts.

Alternative Schedules

There are a variety of reasons why schools request an alternative schedule. It is the board’s responsibility to review and approve alternative schedule requests.

In addition to reviewing and approving policies, the State Board of Education also considers larger issues and opportunities in Wyoming education. Below are two priority issues identified by the board.

American Indian Education

Wyoming’s American Indian students are achieving proficiency on state assessments at lower rates and are less likely to graduate than the rest of the Wyoming K-12 population. The board is working with its partners in education, both on and off the Wind River reservation, to enhance outcomes for Wyoming’s Native students.

Early Childhood Education

The board supports legislation and other efforts to expand optional early childhood education opportunities for every child in Wyoming so that all students enter kindergarten ready to learn.
