According to a new survey from the Wyoming School Board Association, a top factor hurting teacher hiring and retention could be a lack of respect and trust shown toward educators.

The Wyoming Department of Education has announced that it, along with the Professional Teaching Standards Board and the U.S. Department of Labor, has signed an agreement that creates standards for Wyoming’s Teacher Apprenticeship Initiative.

The step will allow pilot school districts to begin taking applications from candidates for the spring 2023 semester. This will include Teton County School District No.1, which was selected as one of three districts in the state to participate in the pilot program.
