The Johnson County School Board got a brief update on the current Legislative Session and they approved employment requests at their last meeting.
Superintendent Dr. Rod Kessler said there were “a ton of education bills” the Legislature began the session with but most have gone by the wayside.
A few that administrators around the state are still watching are the numerous bills dealing with testing and curriculum. So far the districts don't know what if anything will change, but they will be watching to see what might be coming.
Also the situation with Cindy Hill will be watched closely.
Wyoming's Common Core has been renamed, he said, and will now be known as “Uniform State Standards.”
After leaving the session last week, he said he and many other administrators have more questions than answers they hope to have answered before it ends later this month.
Kessler explained how accountability statewide may be affected.
The board approved one employment request at the meeting.
Kathy Camino was approved to move from Special Education Director to Social Studies Instructor at Clear Creek Middle School.
