    (Riverton, WY) – The Fremont County School District #25 Board of Trustees will convene for their regular meeting on Tuesday, April 23, at 6:30 p.m. in the Board Chambers located at 121 North 5th Street. This meeting is open to the public and can be watched via YouTube.

    The meeting will include a public forum for the disposition of Ashgrove Elementary School, followed by an executive session for the consideration of the sale of real estate and legal advice.

    During the Round Table, the Board will hear from Harlee Speyer, Miss Wheelchair Wyoming, about accessibility awareness. Justin Taylor will give a Frontier Academy and Spur Virtual update and give an out-of-state travel request. Kim Lenhardt will give an ELA Curriculum presentation, and finally, Matt Gonzales will give a tentative budget review for 2024-2025.


    The meeting will continue with nine action items, which are as follows:

    Reggie Miller is recommending the Board approve an out-of-state travel request for the RHS Volleyball team to travel to Black Hills State in Spearfish, SD, in July 2024. They are not requesting funds.

    Christina Mills is recommending the Board approve the new 9-12 ELA Curriculum for the 2024-2025 school year.

    Justin Taylor is recommending the Board approve the following Student/Parent Handbooks for Frontier Academy, Spur Virtual Academy and Venture Upward Academy for the 2024-2025 school year.


    Jeremy Hill is requesting the Board approve the Elementary School Student Common Handbook for the 2024-2025 school year.

    Justin Taylor is requesting the Board approve the following new course proposals for Frontier Academy students to be concurrently enrolled with both Fremont County School District No. 25 and Wind River Job Corps.  Students that are in good standing with credits, behavior, and attendance, will be given the opportunity to work toward a high school diploma while earning a certificate in a career field. For this to work, a student will attend Frontier Academy for one week, working on core classes (ELA, Math, Science, Social Studies), then the following week the student will attend Job Corps (8am to 4pm) and work in the selected trade. With the approval of these courses, Frontie students will earn elective CTE credits which will be applied toward their graduation credit of 25.0. Job Corps stated that if a student is able to work and meet expectations, a student should be able to complete within a year. For this first year, we are planning to have one or two students try this educational path to give us a better understanding of learning outcomes and expectations.
