Sheridan's Woodland Park Elementary School is the highest-ranked elementary school in Wyoming.

That's according to Niche.com, which is an online service that provides ratings for K through 12 schools, colleges and universities.

Mitch Craft, who's assistant superintendent for Sheridan County School District 2, reported the ratings of Niche.com at Monday's school board meeting.

Craft said Niche.com has been ranking the school district for about seven years, and the district has been sharing the rankings with the public for about four years.

Craft said four of Sheridan's elementary schools were rated in the top five in Wyoming – with the school coming in at the No. 2 spot being a charter school.

Sheridan Junior High School was ranked second among Wyoming junior high and middle schools, with the top spot going to a charter school, and Sheridan High School was ranked sixth among Wyoming high schools overall and third among the state's 4-A high schools.

In other matters Monday, trustees approved an amendment to the district's budget for the year that ended on June 30 so the budget could be finalized. District Business Manager Eileen Bentley said the district realized about $200,000 more in revenues than were originally expected, bringing the final general fund budget to a little over $50 million.

Craft updated trustees on the district's professional development calendar for the year ahead. He said new teacher orientation will be Friday and next Monday, and the back-to-school picnic will be on Aug. 20. The first day of school will be Aug. 27.
