Cheyenne, WY. – A bill endorsed by the Joint Education Committee on Tuesday, will go before the full Legislature when it meets in the next session in 2018.
The bill would cut roughly $16 million from Wyoming schools by making slight changes in how schools calculate their enrollment, cutting funds from testing, and changing how groundskeepers are funded.
Another bill that will be presented would look to add computer science courses to the state’s educational program.
Wyoming schools have been struggling to maintain funding recently and state lawmakers have been having trouble finding ways to help them. Schools in the state are expected to face a $300 million plus dollar shortfall over the next 2 years.
