Converse County School District #1 will continue adaptive learning to be delivered under its approved Adaptive Learning Plan through the end of the school year. Teachers, with the help of student support teams, will continue to deliver instruction remotely under the auspices of the plan.
Wyoming schools are to remain closed under the new extended orders from the Wyoming Department of Health through May 18. Districts may make a request to their county health officer to bring very small numbers of students into school buildings for special educational needs. The district is crafting such a request, but it must be approved locally, and then must be approved by the state health officer and the Wyoming attorney general.
According to superintendent Dr. Paige Fenton Hughes, "the option to bring a very small number of students with specific educational needs is limited and could only happen in very tight, and controlled circumstances to protect the health and safety of students and staff members. If the request is approved, the district will evaluate student needs on a case-by-case basis in the upcoming days. This would involve very few of our students. Schools will directly contact families of those students if the plan is approved."
Plans are being made for all students to retrieve their personal items from schools and to return school property, library books, and pay fines. When these plans are finalized, they will be communicated to families by schools.
The last day of school is May 22.
