Our system has approximately 2,000 students enrolled in five elementary schools, one junior high school, one high school and an alternative learning center. We are located in a rural area of Wyoming on the eastern slopes of the majestic Wind River Range in south central Wyoming. Fremont County School District #1 is fully accredited by the State of Wyoming and North Central Accreditation. Tom Martin is the District's Superintendent.
The history of the school system can be traced from the 1890's when Lander first became a town.
School to Careers
The School-to-Careers concept was born out of the federal School-to-Work Job Opportunities Act of 1994, in which the Federal Government determined that students were coming out of school unprepared for the world of work. To put it simply, this act established a national framework within which all states could create School-to-Work opportunities systems statewide that integrate work-based learning and school-based learning in an academic setting.
With the establishment of the Lander Valley Alliance for Careers & Education in November of 1999, local businesses, along with parents, students, educators and staff members of Fremont County School District #1, have joined together to design a plan to integrate academic learning with the work-based skills and experiences that will assist our students in career preparation and exploration.
The Lander Valley Alliance for Careers and Education was created from a School-to-Careers grant for grades K-16. This grant was awarded to Fremont County School District #1, from the State of Wyoming School-to-Careers office, through the State Department of Employment.
The Community Partnership will provide students with school-based learning, work-based learning and connecting activities. In the Fremont County School District #1, we believe that preparing our students for the workforce is truly a community business.
