Cheyenne May Get Virtual School

Cheyenne, WY – The school district in Cheyenne is looking into starting a virtual charter school for students in kindergarten through 12th grade.

Students enrolled in the school would take classes online.

District Superintendent Ted Adams says the goal is to serve youngsters in the district who are currently home-schooled. Ten home-schooled students are ready to enroll now.

It wouldn't be the first virtual charter school in Wyoming. The school district in Gillette started one a few years ago.

Enrollment in that K-through-6 school is now open to students statewide.
