Congratulations to the Kaycee Football Team - State Champions!! 

The Wyoming School Boards Association Certified Board Member Program is a voluntary program established by the WSBA to encourage school board members to improve their effectiveness. This improvement comes through formal training programs, through personal experience, as well as sharing in the experiences of other board members. 

The JCSD#1 Board of Trustees earned two awards at the 2016 WSBA conference in Casper. The first is the Standard of Excellence Award presented to a district when a majority of its current members have received or are eligible for the Certified Master Board Member Award. The second award is the Certificate of Recognition Award for Boards when all of their current members have received 25 or more training points.

Marcy Schueler received the Leadership in Learning - Level I award for having earned more than 400 Board Certification Points. 

Congratulations Marcy and the JCSD#1 Board of Trustees!
