The Wyoming Office of the Superintendent of Public Instruction has been asked to write a report on the status of all schools in the state. As part of this report they are collecting input from educators, parents and the community. You thoughts and feedback are essential to this process and could be extremely helpful to the development of future educational policy. Please take a few minutes to respond.
Below are links to the three different surveys: Educator, Parent, and Community Member. Please fill out the survey(s) most applicable to you.

Student Opportunities & Activities
Advanced Course Offerings ~
The advanced placement program offers a learning environment of enrichment and acceleration to academic high-potential students. Appropriate programs that focus on each child’s unique characteristics, grade and ability, practice and extend these qualities. The content of the curriculum is compacted and accelerated using a variety of approaches and strategies.
Extended Learning Programs ~
Many schools in our district have extended day programs such as homework clubs, morning learning labs, after school tutoring and programs to develop skills in specific content areas. In addition, there are classroom intervention programs to assist students in language arts and math. At-risk students have access to summer school and support through the Building Intervention Team. Please contact the building principal to find out what is available to help your student at school.
Library Services ~
All schools have a library available for students that includes computer stations (with Internet access) to complete assignments or for subject reinforcement/enrichment. The librarian is available to aid students with reference materials and reading selections. Parents are encouraged to visit the library with their student and review materials. Students should feel free to ask for assistance in locating and using necessary materials.
Students frequently participate in technology-assisted learning activities. These activities utilize computers and other technology-based tools. All schools have computers in classrooms and traditional and/or mobile computer labs large enough to accommodate an entire class. These computers are connected to the district network and the Internet. Technology-based resources include: reference materials, curricular reinforcement/enrichment, presentation creation, data collection, data processing, work processing and various forms of communication/collaboration. See student internet access information.
Other Activities and Organizations ~
All secondary schools provide an activities book and/or student planner showing availability of student activities, programs and organizations.
Activities in LCSD1 are identified as co-curricular, emphasizing that they are an integral part of the school’s total mission. Co-curricular pursuits should support the goal of teaching students to be responsible, fulfilled human beings, and provide them with opportunities that develop character, critical thinking, sociability and specific skills. Essentially, all activities carried out under the jurisdiction of a school should be viewed in terms of their potential contribution to the school’s overall goals for young people. This imperative applies to athletics and clubs as much as it does to student government and publications.
For additional information, contact the activities director at the respective school.
Math Contests ~
Annually, students at East ,Central and South participate in the Wolsborn-Drazovich Wyoming State Math Contest. This event involves a series of five tests covering all different topics within mathematics.
Students can also participate in the AMC 10 or AMC 12 exams. These exams are optional for students and are either given in Cheyenne or Laramie.
Students should contact their math teacher if interested in the state math contest of the AMC exam.
