Cheyenne, Wy – The State Superintendent of Public Instruction says he wants to give districts more local control. Trent Blankenship is proposing that the state get rid of the three tiered or three levels on high school transcripts. This would also mean the state would not have to review graduation requirements that each district creates.
The Chair of the State School Board, Brent Young, says the board is in favor of getting rid of the three tiers but the board wants the state to review graduation requirements in all districts to ensure equality around the state.
Superintendent Blankenship says there is plenty of oversight with all of the student assessment that happens right now.
