Fremont County School District No. 21 Info

Fremont County School District #21 Administration

In 1954, Fremont County School District #21 was established as one of two kindergarten through 8th grade school districts in the state of Wyoming. Fifty years later, iin 2004, the district was granted a charter by the Board of Trustees with a sanction of the State Board of Education and the Wyoming Department of Education to offer a 9-12 program and thus was born WeAVE, Wyoming e Academy of Virtual Education, an online high school. WeAVE is a school district within a school district operating under the rules and regulations of a charter and under the watchful eye of its own Board of Education. Instruction will be primarily online from a separate facility, however it has the capability of allowing student to log on from anywhere in the state.

FCSD #21 is located on the Wind River Indian Reservation and the student population is 100% Native American. The school is the center of activity for the community and works closely with the Eastern Shoshone Tribe to preserve and enhance the Native American culture. A new facility was added to the campus that includes the school library, the county library, the Eastern Shoshone Culture Center and a school/community technology learning center. It is believed to be the first one in the country that includes all four entities at a cost of 1.4 million dollars. The center is open to students, their families, and the general public.


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Staff development is an integral part of the school program. The district is constantly providing staff with in-service and training to insure that classroom instruction is of the highest quality. Not only does the district provide students with an extensive academic program but also provides an after school program that includes homework help, enrichment activities and an extensive adult education program. The district maintains high standards for both students and staff.


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

The district is managed by the district superintendent and the board of education. The board is made up of five members, elected by the public for four-year terms. They meet once a month in regular session and usually have one work session per month. Board members also participate in extensive training sessions, which is evident by the many awards they have received. The school has its own principal and several support staff members along with the teaching staff.

The Board of Trustees not only professes that children come first, but they also practice that belief.


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Education in the community plays a vital role in our school. Throughout our model after schol programming, we offer a wide variety of courses to both students and families within the district. When you walk into our buildings after the normal school day has finished, it is common to find students engaged in activities such as Native American dancing, drumming, photography, and baseball to name a few. Also, you will find adults participating in both undergraduate and graduate level classes such as history, biology, language, and technology classes.
