Byron Residents Petition Out Of School District

Byron, WY – A number of Byron residents are protesting a decision by Big Horn County School District One Trustees to centralize schools in the district. A petition is aking that Byron be severed from the district and attached to school district number two in Lovell. Several parents have pulled their children from the Byron schools and transferred them to Lovell. The District One board voted four to three last month to build a new high school and middle school complex in Cowley, which is an eight mile drive from Byron. The new schools will replace the aging Rocky Mountain High School and middle school now located at Byron.
