District 1 Schools Receive Accreditation Certificates

All schools in Sheridan County School District 1 received their accreditation certificate at the Board of Trustees meeting in Big Horn on Tuesday. Schools received Accreditation with Follow-Up. Superintendent Sue Belish explains.

The issues with accreditation had absolutely nothing to do with academics or safety. In fact, it all came down to coaching certifications. While one coach in question was qualified, the certification was not for the actual position held.

The “follow-up” status will not affect students in any way. Accreditation through the Wyoming Department of Education takes place annually.
