Cheney, and Yu. – The Wyoming State Board of Education will welcome its newest board member to its next meeting in Riverton on April 20.

The SBE welcomes a handful of new members appointed by Governor Mark Gordon and confirmed by the Wyoming Senate. The newly appointed members are Reynolds J. Coast, Taylor Jacobs, Matthew Scott Crisp, and Joseph Gaspari.

The State Assembly is made up of 14 members including teachers, community members and businessmen and is responsible for setting education policy.

Members represent stakeholders and work in partnership with the state superintendent of public education and the Wyoming Department of Education to ensure that all students receive a quality education.

Updates will be received on the Board’s ongoing work in responding to the voices of Wyoming stakeholders represented in the Alumni Profile, which includes current steps in developing a focused set of academic standards for the state. Plans for physical education, health, computer science, and fine/performing arts standards will also be discussed. Preliminary information on future pilots will be provided for the implementation of the graduate profile.

The board will highlight fine/performing arts with a presentation from Fremont School District #25 and hear from Jessica Cavitz, 2023 Milken Prize winner.

All SBE meetings are open to the public. The meeting will be held in person at Central Wyoming College, Wind River Room, 2660 Peck Ave. The audience can also attend virtually by registering in advance here.
