FEEDBACK Requested 

In December 2016, a subcommittee of the Legislature’s Joint

Education Committee was created to generate ideas and develop possible

solutions to anticipated decreases in operational funding for K-12 Education in

the State of Wyoming.  Funding for the daily operations of Wyoming schools faces an estimated shortfall of $360 million to $400 million annually in the 2019-2020 and 2021-2022 biennia.

Subcommittee ideas and possible solutions in response to Wyoming’s

K-12 education funding deficit can be found in a white paper released by the

Subcommittee on December 28th.

Natrona County Schools would like to recognize the service and leadership of our state legislators. The Wyoming Legislature has been very supportive of K-12 Education over the past decades. We recognize the challenge they now face and appreciate the dedicated and diligent work of the Subcommittee.

Thank you.
