We will maintain our commitment to excellence. We will meet the changing needs of our students. We will foster a lifelong love of learning in our students and larger community. We will continue to be relevant and sharpen our competitive edge within the region and state.
Learn collaboration Learn critical and creative thinking Learn oral communication Learn written communication Learn technology
Develop citizenship and leadership Practice healthy lifestyles Learn about careers Core subjects Globally competent

February - After visiting several schools, P&G, and NKU, we met at NKU where we completed a power dot exercise to bring focus to our experiences. April -Judd Weis presented the findings from the dot exercise. The team discussed how to group the data and identify the big ideas. May - Dr. Lang proposed a Vision, Mission and list of Habits. Smaller groups reviewed the habits and then proposed revisions. A subcommittee wrote the habits as positive statements about our Wyoming School community. JUNE - Dr. Lang presented the revised habits to the entire team. The reaction was positive and everyone had the opportunity to propose revisions that they felt improved the work.
Acceptance of Wyomings 21 st Century Habits by the school district/Board of Education. Dissemination of Wyomings 21 st Century Habits to staff and parents. Development of a rubric that shows what each habit looks like in action and how individual student achievement can be measured. Creation of specific district wide goals for the implementation of Wyomings 21 st Century Habits.
Determination of what resources are needed to enable the Habits to be implemented. (That includes the physical design of the schools, technological software and hardware, teaching materials, course offerings, mentor relationships, etc.) Elaboration of a plan to provide training to staff regarding the implementation of Wyomings 21 st Century Habits. Qualification that the design committee reviews the building design plans through the filter of Wyomings 21 st Century Habits.
Define STEAM for Wyoming City Schools. Take action to seek out and join collaborative STEM and STEAM initiatives. Have STEAM definition and objectives influence school design (i.e., a design that allows for mentoring, tutoring, prototyping and small group work in addition to classroom interactions)
