Construction on Casper’s two largest high schools is underway. Design on a new campus to house Roosevelt High School and the Center for Advanced and Professional Studies (CAPS) is nearing completion. The state is generously paying for the bulk of the projects, but some of the equipment needed to support instruction in these new buildings remains unfunded. In addition, many of the district’s elementary schools need vital security improvements.
Wyoming school districts are fortunate in that the state invests millions of dollars in its schools using revenue from mineral royalties, easing the burden on taxpayers. To make it equitable for districts, the state limits what it can or will pay for, leaving local school districts to foot the bill for certain items or make difficult choices to cut programs or go without needed equipment.
The Natrona County School District is looking for public support in funding critical items for facilities and programs. The Board of Trustees has scheduled a series of town hall discussions in November. The board’s intention is to invite the public to participate in a conversation about a possible bond measure. You can join the discussion on any of the following dates and locations:
Nov. 12 – Natrona County High School, cafeteria
Nov. 14 – Evansville Elementary, gymnasium
Nov. 19 – Kelly Walsh High School, cafeteria
Nov. 26 – Roosevelt High School, gymnasium
All sessions will begin at 6 p.m and are open to the public.
Your voice is welcome and appreciated in this important conversation for the future of our children.
