School District Plans Improvements

TCSD

Members of the public are being invited to visit with Teton County’s School Board later this week about provisions contained in the district’s just-adopted strategic plan.  Superintendent Pam Shea says the plan is the result of two years of work by teachers and administrators working with the school board.  She says a thorough data collection was done along with an analysis of the district’s strengths and weaknesses; and from that, she says they examined what objectives the district wanted to accomplish in the next two years and what specific strategies should be in place in order to achieve those goals.  Shea says there are four major categories for those goals.  Those include improving students’ academic success from Kindergarten through 12th grade, ensuring a safe, caring and healthy educational environment, improving effective and efficient operations, and increasing community and stakeholder involvement.  Each of those categories contains steps to accomplish the broader objectives, and those steps specifically for the fourth goal will be discussed in two public workshops.  One of those workshops is Thursday in the county commission chambers beginning at 5:30 pm.  Shea says another will be held December 10th at the Old Wilson Schoolhouse community center.  Those wishing to view the specific points of the plan may find it posted on the Teton County School District #1 website.

    By some strange luck, I shot really well last week in our trap league. But last night, I didn’t do so well. Not even close. The thing about shooting trap is that you’re bound to have good rounds once in a while. Those good nights give you hope that you’re improving. For some people, that […]

    The Wyoming Cowboy football team will have one more practice before Saturday’s spring game.  The major focus this spring, at least for the offensive line, is to be more physical and deliver the blows.  As offensive line coach Scott Fuchs tells the unit, “be the hammer, not the nail”.  That’s a difference in philosophy between […]
  • Find some new places to fish - April 16, 2014
    Instead of fishing the same old places this spring, do something different. Find a new honey hole. You don’t have to go to the same place every time you go fishing. When you find a good spot to fish, it’s nice to know you can go back there and catch fish. But if your honey […]
