The Board of Trustees shall cause the schools under its jurisdiction to provide the full range of programs designed to meet the individual needs of the great majority of students, beginning with the primary areas of instruction and extending to all community education.
The law required the Board to adhere to the minimum standards relating to educational programs promulgated by the State Board of Education. Among these requirements are:
Ø Instruction, for at least three years in the elementary grades and for one year in the secondary schools, in the essentials of the United States Constitution and the Constitution of the State of Wyoming, including the study of and devotion to American institutions and ideals;
Ø A high school course of study adequate to prepare students of the district for admission to the University of Wyoming and the various community colleges of the state.
The Uinta County School District Number one shall provide an educational program sufficiently broad to serve both general and specialized needs of students with different ability and interest levels through a variety of learning experiences.
Commitment to Basics
As one of its educational priority objectives, the Board has endorsed the concept that a good basic education is the heart of preparation for any career of life goal. (See AE, School District Goals and Objectives).
The Board believes that a prime important objective of our schools should be to adequately provide each student with the basic communication skills of reading, writing, and basic mathematics. No citizen can function adequately without these skills.
In addition to its commitment to the teaching of basic skills, the Board, in its education philosophy and its statement of goals and objectives, has committed itself to developing in students the means for full self-realization and self-expression; the ability to form positive human relationships; a positive attitude towards—and fundamental skills to function within—the world of work; a sense of civic responsibility; self-discipline; and an attitude towards learning that will recognize that education is a life long process that does not end with formal education.
