Additional input sought on Social Studies standards

WDE  1-9-18

The Wyoming Department of Education (WDE) will host a public discussion and meeting on the state’s Social Studies Standards in relation to the American Indian Education bill. The meeting on January 16 in Riverton will provide the community with an update on the review committee’s work, and allow for additional input on the standards.

The WDE is currently reviewing the 2014 Wyoming Social Studies Content and Performance Standards in accordance with 2017 House Enrolled Act 119. The January 16 meeting will allow the community an opportunity to review and comment on the progress of the standards before the committee meets later this month.

Following brief presentations by committee members, participants will visit with WDE staff and committee members in small groups. Afterward, Elders and community members will be invited to share their thoughts with the entire group.

The meeting is set for 6:30-8 p.m. on Tuesday, January 16, at the Fremont County Library, Carnegie Room, 1330 West Park Avenue in Riverton.
