Wyoming Governor Matt Mead signed two executive orders Friday that address recommendations recommended by his ENDOW Council.
The first one asks state education officials to develop a plan where 67 percent of Wyoming’s working age population would hold a post-secondary degree or certificate by 2025, and for 82 percent to achieve that by 2040.
“The Wyoming Department of Education, the Wyoming Community Colleges, and the University of Wyoming will collaborate on a plan necessary to achieve Wyoming’s educational attainment goal, implement strategies necessary, and provide annual progress reports. “
Mead’s second executive order would provide more opportunities for state tech companies to provide services to state government. Officials hope that will enhance Wyoming’s technology sector.
