Gillette, WY. — Seven Wyoming school districts have now approved resolutions that can open the door to possible legal action against the state of Wyoming over school financing.
These resolutions don’t guarentee that districts will pursue legal action, but allow for the individual districts to file or join into a lawsuit.
Campbell County School District was the first to approve a resolution on March 28. Since then, Laramie County School District 1 in Cheyenne, Sweetwater County 1 and 2, Sheridan County 1, Sublette County 1 and Lincoln County 1 have followed with authorization.
Campbell County Superintendent Boyd Brown said it shows how important school trustees throughout Wyoming feel about protecting their students from being impacted by state budget cuts.
