Sheridan County School District #1
General Overview of District
Sheridan County School District One is one of three school districts located in Sheridan County, Wyoming. It is approximately 60 miles long and 30 miles wide. The district contains 932 square miles and has the Wyoming-Montana border as its northern boundary. The district administrative office is located in Ranchester, which is approximately 15 miles north of Sheridan on Interstate 90. The school district serves approximately 900 students from the communities of Big Horn, Dayton, Ranchester, and Parkman.
An administrative staff of nine manages the district: the Superintendent, Director of Special Programs, five building principals, the Business Manager and Technology Coordinator. We currently have 109 certified staff members and 70 support staff. District One operates a 4-day week, with 148 non-interrupted student days per year. Professional staff members work 164 days per year, including 16 Fridays for in-service and curriculum development. Currently we are in our 21st year on this 4-day week schedule, which permits us to place a strong emphasis on professional growth.
The Board of Trustees believes strongly that in order to have effective schools we must have caring staff members who are willing to continually prepare themselves for the important work they do. We are one of the few school districts in the state that invests in staff by reimbursing them for tuition costs to further their education.
The districts’ Special Programs Department serves students with special needs by providing educational opportunities for ALL our students. Besides providing special education and Title I programs, we also have two coordinators for our gifted and talented (Venture) program. Venture is designed to provide both academically challenging courses and enrichment experiences for students.
Our staff works hard to involve families in the business of educating their children. Parents are invited to visit the school, attend parent-training sessions, and participate on district committees. Each of our schools has a parent advisory group as well as a Steering Committee. These groups help to design educational and climate goals for each school. The district is constantly looking for ways to improve the programs we provide and welcomes the suggestions we receive from students, families, staff, and community members. This input is solicited through written surveys and public meetings. We measure our progress, and as goals are accomplished we will continue to set new ones.
