Laramie County Approves Stronger Standards

Cheyenne, Wy – Laramie County School District Number Two has approved stricter graduation requirements to meet state standards.
Students still need 25 credits to graduate, but must meet at least five of nine new state standards to receive a diploma starting in 2006.
The change approved by trustees moves the timeline required to meet state standards from 2003 to 2006.
The state is requiring proficiency from the district by that time.
