Civics Ed Center

Wyoming Department of Education > For Teachers > Civics Ed Center

The Civics Ed Center was created in collaboration with the University of Wyoming – Malcolm Wallop Civic Engagement Program. The project marks the completion of a goal within the Develop Citizenship for Students initiative in Superintendent Megan Degenfelder’s WDE Strategic Plan.

The center is the result of the work of a subcabinet of education stakeholders who were appointed from across Wyoming to represent the interest of students, parents, school districts, and communities. The goal of Enhancing Civics Education and Engagement is intended to support the work being done by districts, schools, and community organizations through researching resources and making them readily accessible. 

The resources provided have been aligned with the Wyoming Content and Performance Standards and the State Board of Education’s Profile of a Graduate.
