CASPER, Wyo. (Wyoming News Now) - Monday May 9 the Natrona County School District met for their only meeting of the month. At the meeting the Board was introduced to two years worth of the school districts National Board Certified Teachers. These teachers have to complete a few strenuous tasks to be able to receive this certification. Some of these tasks include submitting a video so their teaching style can be reviewed and submitting a portfolio for inspection. They must also submit a writing assignment that showcases the depth of their knowledge in the subject they teach.

The board was also addressed by the principals of the districts four high schools. Principals of Midwest, Kelly Walsh, Natrona County, and Roosevelt high schools spoke about some of the changes they will be making to their curriculums due to new incoming freshmen who have been part of the districts dual language immersion program for the past 10 years. The principals also discussed some of the new courses they plan to offer students in the coming years.

“In the end we’re trying to provide opportunities for our high school students to be ready for either the military, career opportunities, or college. As a Board we want high expectations and then we want care and support for all of our students and we have to try and constantly balance those two things,” said Board Treasurer Dave Applegate.
