Wyoming legislators will be devoting up to three days this month on recalibration, with a possible final meeting in December.

That’s according to Pete Kilbride, superintendent of Sheridan County School District 1, who gave a report on the topic at a meeting of the district’s trustees earlier this week.

In an interview with Sheridan Media, Kilbride explained what recalibration is.

He said the Legislature then decides whether to accept the consultant’s report or go with a legislative model for funding the state’s school districts. That, then, is how the Legislature determines how much money each district will receive from the state.

Kilbride explained why that’s a concern not only to School District 1 but other districts in the state.

Kilbride said the legislators’ first meeting on recalibration will be Oct. 28, 29 and 30 in Cheyenne, and a final meeting is scheduled for Dec. 14 and 15.

He said all of the meetings will be live via Zoom, and those watching the sessions will be able to call in and provide testimony. He said he will be among those attending the online sessions.
