Cheyenne, Wy – The Wyoming School Boards Association has
partially withdrawn from a lawsuit that challenged the state's
school finance system.
The board of directors of the Wyoming School Boards Association
has voted to withdraw from the part of the lawsuit that challenged
the funding of the daily school operations.
Association President Monty Wardell says the state Legislature
last winter increased spending for schools enough so that there is
no reason to continue the litigation on that part of the suit.
However, the association will stay with the coalition on the
part of the lawsuit dealing with how the state pays for school
construction and repair.
