Sheridan County School District No. 1 approved several resolutions at their regular board meeting this week. SCSD1 Superintendent Marty Kobza took us through items on the agenda that included a resolution to relieve pressure placed on the district by the No Child Left Behind Act.
The adopted resolution concerning Regulatory Relief for Wyoming Schools supports that the the Elementary and Secondary Education Act, better known as No Child Left Behind, is outdated and needs re-authorization in some areas. It asks the Wyoming Department of Education to relieve stress from the Act being put on schools while Congress debates complete re-authorization. Specifically, schools in the state that adopt the resolution ask that no further Annual Yearly Progress requirements place schools under sanctions.
Also at the meeting they discussed a split Kindergarten schedule shared with shared staffing at Big Horn elementary that they will be using this year.
Finally the board scheduled a retreat to meet with Kobza, in order to go over goals for the year. The retreat will take place Sept. 28.
