SHERIDAN — Sheridan County School District 2 officials expressed some frustration Monday to local legislators regarding a bill passed in 2022 that requires school districts to utilize specific literacy screening and intervention tools as outlined by the Wyoming Department of Education and implement professional development delivered or approved by the department.

"SCSD2 truly believes — and it's really grounded in evidence — that teachers, not programs or assessments, make the difference in learning for our students," said Kristie Garriffa, assistant superintendent for curriculum and assessment at SCSD2.

Kristen Czaban has worked with The Sheridan Press since June 2008, moving to Wyoming after graduating from Medill School of Journalism at Northwestern University. She covered a wide range of beats before becoming editor in 2012 and publisher in 2017.
