91 Temporary Teaching Positions Eliminated at LCSD1

In an effort to help elementary and secondary schools address the impact that the COVID-19 pandemic has had on schools across the nation, Congress issued funds through the Elementary and Secondary School Emergency Relief Fund (I and II).

LCSD1 utilized some of this money to hire additional one-year only teachers to assist our students. This grant will no longer be available at the end of the school year. Teachers who were hired in these positions were aware that these were temporary positions.

In accordance with Wyoming Statute, LCSD1 is required to notify staff who are not going to be renewed by April 15. So that they have more time to apply for different positions both within and outside of the district, building administrators hand-delivered letters to the 91 individuals who are affected.
