Converse County School District #2 Announcements
SUPERINTENDENT'S REPORT, Contacting Legislators
The 2015 General Session of the Wyoming Legislature will convene on Tuesday, January 13, 2015.  The General Session occurs every other year and is scheduled to last 40 days.  The General Session is scheduled to end March 6, 2015.  Last year’s legislative session was a Budget Session and that session lasted 20 days.  One of the biggest bills that was passed by the Legislature affecting education is the educational accountability bill.  This bill basically was designed to determine how the State of Wyoming is to measure schools and hold them accountable.  The Legislature formed a committee consisting of Senators and Representatives to work on the accountability bill.  They were charged with determining what measures they want to use to hold schools accountable.  One measure is the Wyoming Accountability in Education Act (WAEA).  At the present time the committee of legislators has not fully determined all the measures that will be used in the accountability bill.  They are still working on defining all measures. 
 
There are always many issues to watch and track during a General Session that not only affect our schools, but affect us personally or professionally.  You can track the progress of legislation through the use of the internet or the news media.  Another way is to contact your elected officials personally. 
 
Our elected Legislators representing our school district are Senator Jim Anderson and Representative Richard Cannady.  If you are interested in contacting Senator Anderson and Representative Cannady on any bill during the legislative session, there are a number of ways for you to do so.  You may call the Senate Receptionist at 307-777-7711 or the House Receptionist at 307-777-7852.  Written mail may be directed to the Wyoming State House or Wyoming State Senate, Capitol Building, Cheyenne, WY 82002.  Faxes can be sent to designated legislators at 307-777-5466.  If you want to recommend a vote for or against a bill, call the Voter Hotline at 1-866-996-8683.  You cannot leave a message, just a yes or no vote.  You may also contact Senator Anderson by email at Jim.Anderson@wyoleg.gov or Representative Cannady at Richard.Cannady@wyoleg.gov.  Senator Anderson and Representative Cannady welcome your input on all issues facing the State of Wyoming.
