LARAMIE, Wyo. (April 14, 2021) – Albany County School District #1 (ACSD#1) is working with the State Board of Education (SBE) to create the Wyoming “Profile of a Graduate.” ACSD#1 hopes to work with the Albany County community to provide input on what the K-12 system in the state should produce in terms of its graduates.

ACSD#1 will be holding a joint listening session in one week on April 21, from 6-7 p.m. Follow this link to join. The school district is welcoming feedback from the community on three important questions that will guide the “Profile of a Graduate:”

  • What are the hopes, aspirations, and dreams that our community has for our young people?
  • What are the skills and habits of mind that our children need for success in this rapidly changing and complex world?
  • What are the implications for the learning experiences we provide in our school systems?

Additionally, community members can complete this survey to provide feedback on what they think the “Profile of a Graduate” should include.

To meet the SBE’s responsibility of setting graduation standards, the SBE is working to define what it means to be a graduate by creating the Wyoming Profile of a Graduate; an ideal vision of a Wyoming graduate that can guide the board and the state in matters of education policy.

The SBE realizes these questions are too important and too big to arrive at a clear profile on its own, so it is turning toward all interested citizens of the state to contribute to the conversation.  The goal is to work in collaboration with Wyoming residents, school districts, parents, students, teachers, communities, business leaders, technical schools, and higher education to determine the ideals of our education system.
