Special Master Sought In School Funding Suit

Cheyenne, WY – Some want to see a Special Master to serve as a neutral officials in the state's 12 year old school funding battle. Thirty of Wyoming's 48 school districts joined the Wyoming Education Association and Wyoming School Boards Association in petitioning the state Supreme Court on the issue. The groups say the person would gather facts about the constitutionality of Wyoming's school financing system. The court document was in response to a petition filed by the Wyoming Attorney General to ask the court to declare the system constitutional. It's not known when the Supreme Court will act on any of the petitions.
