State of the District 2013

18 Nov


This is the third annual State of the District hosted at Central High School. Laramie County School District 1‘s superintendent Dr. Mark Stock gives a report to parents, students, staff and the public about the performance of the school district; to keep everyone informed and to spark conversation.

Stay informed, stay educated

I am posting this because I believe that Laramie County Community College has a relative high percentage of non traditional students, which in many cases are also parents.
If you are a parent in Cheyenne, your kid/s will be going to one of the schools within LCSD1, therefore I think it is important to be informed and stay informed.

Information overload

The entire video is 57 minutes long because I did minimal editing to preserve what I captured. It includes the presentation at the beginning  to honor the nations veterans, as SOTD was held on Nov. 11, 2013.

Compare numbers with previous years

As mentioned above this is the third annual State of the District, the prior ones can be found be clicking here.
