CHEYENNE, Wyo. (Wyoming News Now) - Changes are coming for Laramie County School District 1′s High School Math and Science classes. Both textbooks are currently under public review.

“We really try to review everything every seven years or so to just sort of check in and see where we are. We know that technology changes, so sometimes that speeds up our process a little bit,” says Julie Kalkins, the K-12 Science and Computer Science Coordinator for the School District.

The science textbooks have been under review since December, while the process for math began today. Both are narrowed down to a select few options.

The public is encouraged to give input on samples of the books, which can be found at the LCSD1 Administration Building and the Laramie County Library.

Once the school district comes to a decision, they will begin to move forward with implementing the books next in the fall of 2022. Then, it will teachers will begin to work with the material.

“Books typically go out to our schools so that they have the books in their hands. As a PLC, we would meet, go through the textbooks there is a rubric the teachers are filling out to determine what book’s going to come out on top,” says LCSD1′s Secondary Mathematics Coordinator Amy Kassel.

Science’s public review will be open until 02/02/2022, while Math’s will close on 02/25/2022.
