May 26, 2014 - By Alejandra Silva, Staff Writer
Superintendent Terry Smith also says the Fremont County School District 14 budget looks "better than it has in awhile."
The Fremont County School District 14 Board of Trustees approved a recommendation May 13 to advertise for the work to be done on the roof of Wyoming Indian High School.
Superintendent Terry Smith said the roof has had "some issues" in the past and the district will now address them.
The board also approved:
- advertising for a waterline connection to the elementary school from the nearby water tank; and
- the Central Wyoming College Board of Cooperative Higher Educational Services budget for 2014-2015.
The board also received a brief presentation on the district's 2014-15 preliminary budget.
Smith said there were a few changes to address, such as the district not replacing a few staff positions, but he said the budget looked positive overall.
"It looks better than it has in awhile," Smith said. "So we feel very good about that."
Smith has completed his first school year with the district. He said he has seen how education is a priority in the state of Wyoming. He praised the school board, staff, parents, students, tribes and community in their work for the district.
