Educator Effectiveness

Educator Effectiveness

The dedication of Wyoming Indian Schools to fully support our Mission to “... empower all students to learn at high levels to become successful in a dynamic world, while strengthening their cultural identities and traditions” is unwavering. 

One effort to provide this support is by being committed to the implementation of the Wyoming Legislature SEA0031 passed during the 2017 Legislative Session. This legislation has two main pieces, one is the Certified Personnel Evaluation Systems (CPES) for District and School Leaders and the other is CPES for teachers.  In our efforts to involve stakeholders and inform our community of these efforts, this site outlines the evaluation system and processes we use to ensure every leader and teacher is fully prepared to make our Mission a Reality for every child.
