The 2018 Wyoming Principal of the Year presented by the National Association of Secondary School Principals, went to a Fremont County man.
Lander Valley High School’s Brad Neuendorf won the top honor this year.
During the 2016–17 school year, our district and school came together to become a professional learning community. The focus that year was to clearly define what we wanted our students to know and be able to do. Department by department, Lander Valley High School prioritized standards, created proficiency scales, ensured common formative assessments reflected those scales, and created a standards-based grading system to serve their 500 students. Over the course of this three-year transition, we have yielded a 10 percent increase to our graduation rate and we were recently named a U.S. News and World Report Best School and an AP Honor Roll School. – Neuendorf told the NAASP
Last year, the award went to Newcastle High School Principal Tracy Ragland.
Wyoming Senator John Barrasso helped break the news via his Twitter page, passing on his congratulations:
