CHEYENNE, Wyo. (KIFI) – Governor Mark Gordon’s K-12 Education Advisory Group has announced a series of community listening sessions to gather feedback from parents and stakeholders on the state’s education system. .
Announced in May 2021, the Advisory Group on Reinventing and Innovating Education Delivery (RIDE) is developing recommendations to elevate Wyoming’s elementary and secondary education system to a position of national leadership. Its members include independent volunteers with an interest in Wyoming’s education system.
An online public survey conducted earlier this year generated more than 7,000 responses, and a final report on the survey results is expected to be released this month. The moderated listening sessions will give stakeholders an additional opportunity to provide feedback on key topics identified in the survey results.
“My advisory group looks forward to hearing firsthand from parents and community members, and getting their input on how we can better prepare our students to compete in a changing world,” said Governor Gordon.
The schedule will include morning and evening sessions and is as follows:
- June 14-15 Afton Lincoln County School District Administration Building
