SHERIDAN — The Wyoming State Board of Education will conduct a one-day meeting in Sheridan on June 22. The meeting will begin at 9 a.m. at the Sheridan County School District 2 central office, located at 201 N. Connor St. 

The SBE will hear reports from SBE coordinator Dr. Thomas Sachse, Wyoming Department of Education liaison Lisa Weigel and WDE staff about accreditation, an update on Every Student Succeeds Act, the Professional Judgment Panel and Advisory Committee, JEIC reports, alternative schedule and school performance ratings, and an update on Chapters 6, 10, and 31.

Following the meeting, the WDE will conduct a community input meeting on Wyoming’s Social Studies Content and Performance Standards as they pertain to Wyoming’s new “American Indian education program” legislation. These meetings will inform the public of the standards review process and gather public input to be shared with the Social Studies Standards Review Committee for their consideration prior to their work.

A presentation will discuss House Enrolled Act 119 and the process to ensure the cultural heritage, history and contemporary contributions of American Indians are addressed in the review of the Social Studies Standards.

Participants will be asked to respond to two questions:

• Why is it important for everyone to learn about American Indians?

• What do you want the review committee to know about the cultural heritage, history, and contemporary contributions of American Indians as they review the Social Studies Standards?

The community input meeting will take place from 6-8 p.m. at the SCSD2 central office. 

Those unable to attend can also respond online through Sept. 8.

Homebuilders Association @ The Sheridan Holiday Inn
Sep 26 @ 6:00 pm

SHERIDAN — The Big Horn Home Builders Association will welcome Alicia George to its next general membership meeting at 6 p.m. Tuesday at The Holiday Inn.

George, a field representative for the National Association of Home Builders in Washington, D.C., will give members a presentation on NAHB’s priorities and what this large national trade association is doing in Washington, D.C., to keep housing affordable, reduce regulatory burdens and help keep the home building industry healthy.

According to BHHBA, an ongoing trade dispute with Canada is making lumber prices much more volatile and potentially driving up the costs of new homes, while uncertainty about the extent of federal jurisdiction over the nation’s rivers and lakes is slowing down the permitting process.

“NAHB volunteers and staff are working tirelessly on Capitol Hill and also speaking to federal regulators about the harmful effects of bureaucracy and red tape,” George said. “Home building is an important driver of the nation’s economy, and helps bring better jobs and stability to communities here in Sheridan County. NAHB works to keep housing strong.”

George received her law degree from Georgia State University College of Law, and a bachelor’s degree in journalism from the University of Georgia. She resides in Denver.

The Big Horn Home Builders Association also welcomes potential members to the Tuesday meeting to learn more about the networking, promotional and educational opportunities available through membership.

All Sheridan County companies and businesses active in home building, remodeling or related fields are encouraged to apply — and many association members are happy to sponsor a qualified prospect.

“We welcome Alicia to this meeting and we hope that Sheridan County’s builders and their suppliers and trade partners will come to hear what she has to say — and also learn more about the advantages of belonging to our great association,” said Gini Horner, director of operations for the Big Horn Home Builders Association.

The Sheridan Holiday Inn is located at 1801 Sugarland Drive.
