Governor Mark Gordon

CHEYENNE, WYOMING — Governor Mark Gordon’s K-12 Education advisory group has announced a series of community listening sessions to take input from parents and stakeholders on the state’s educational system.

Governor Mark Gordon announced the dates for the RIDE Listening Sessions in his press release below.  For our Southwest Wyoming Region the dates, times and location are as follows:

  • June 15, from 6 PM – 7:30 PM at the Holiday Inn Ball Room  (1675 Sunset Drive, Rock Springs)
  • June 16, from 7 AM – 8: 30 AM  at the Holiday Inn Ball Room (1675 Sunset Drive, Rock Springs)

It is important for the RIDE Advisory Group to hear from our community before formulating our recommendations to the Governor. 


Announced in May 2021, the Reimagining and Innovating the Delivery of Education (RIDE) Advisory Group is developing recommendations for elevating Wyoming’s primary and secondary education system into a position of national leadership. Its membership includes independent volunteers with an interest in Wyoming’s education system.

An online public survey conducted earlier this year generated more than 7,000 responses, with a final report on the results of the survey scheduled for release this month. The moderated listening sessions will give stakeholders an additional opportunity to provide input on key topics identified within the results of the survey.    

“My advisory group looks forward to hearing firsthand from parents and community members, and getting their thoughts about how we can better prepare our students to be competitive in a changing world,” Governor Gordon said.
