(Riverton, Wyo.) – Riverton Schools Superintendent Terry Snyder Tuesday night said the district “had an excellent summer of work” on maintenance and facilities improvement projects. “We tried to get all the bids out early to get plans and contractors ready to roll after school let out. All of the contractors did a great job,” he said, “we did have a hiccup here and there but mostly it went very well.”
Snyder said the work was not only to maintain district facilities, but he said many of the projects were designed to “impact curriculum and the learning and instruction for the kids. A good example of that is at the Career Center,” he told the district trustees.
“I want to thank Larry Hartwell (District Facilities) for keeping all the projects together. They were well supervised and we had good quality control throughout.”
