I personally welcome you to Fremont County School District #25 in Riverton, Wyoming! If you want your student to be served by dedicated, professional, passionate and caring staff members, District #25 is the place for you. Fremont County School District #25's mission is to: "EDUCATE, EMPOWER, INSPIRE." This mission is supported by expectations of staff and students to: "Demonstrate integrity, dedication, motivation, citizenship, work ethic and excellence."
It is our commitment to maximize the academic achievement of all students. The staff has been working collaboratively to establish agreed upon K-12 standards in all academic areas, instructional units of study, and common formative assessments. Every student can and must succeed!
The district is working on a number of important initiatives. Last year we opened Frontier Academy, an alternative high school to keep our high risk students in school and to get students who have dropped out back in school to get their high school diploma. We are excited that 17 students graduated in this program's first year. In recent years District #25 had the highest student to teacher ratio in the State of Wyoming in grades K-3 at over 25 students to 1 teacher. The district made a commitment to our elementary students to improve their learning environment. An additional elementary building was required to house the students and the additional staff needed so that we could get to a 16 to 1 ratio. Our new Willow Creek Elementary opened in August 2016. One of the needs we are also working to address is the learning gap of students when they start school. The Aspen Early Learning Center opened in 2016. Two programs for kindergarteners are offered. The traditional kindergarten program is offered along with KinderBoost, a developmentally appropriate kindergarten programming. The district will expand the early-childhood programs in the future to supplement the existing community programs. We have started with a parent partnership program called Learning for Littles. Fremont County School District #25 is working hard to meet the needs of all students!

My personal mission statement is, "Kids are the reason why…" Public education is a great business! I am both proud and blessed to be your superintendent!
