Education Board Continues Science Standards Work

by Jackson Hole Radio News
The Wyoming State Board of Education voted on Thursday to have a review committee continue to examine a draft set of Computer Science standards.

The SBE took testimony from more than 50 individuals regarding the draft Computer Science standards.

After two unsuccessful motions, the State Board voted to fund another two-day meeting of the Computer Science Standards Review Committee, so it can revise the draft Computer Science Standards.

By state law, the SBE has until January 2022 to approve the standards. However, the standards have to be implemented fully by fall of 2022

The board also took action and approved Administrative Procedures (part one), Certified Personnel Evaluation Systems and an Early Learning Resolution.

Valerie Bruce, 2019-20 Wyoming Teacher of the Year, presented to the board on the work she does in her classroom with first graders. She told the board she wants to be remembered as the teacher that always inspired and supported her students.

The next board meeting is scheduled for April 25 in Gillette.
