Comprehensive Improvement Plans submitted to WDE

Below are links to the Comprehensive Improvement Plans of each of the six Platte County #1 schools. These plans outline the goals and efforts to increase student achievement to meet the Wyoming Accountability in Education Act as set by the legislature. These plans will be submitted for review to the Wyoming Department of Education. Each school will continue to update these plans as a part of our continuous improvement process to help us “Reach the PEAK.” There are many opportunities for staff and community members to be involved in helping us improve. If you are interested, contact a building principal or take advantage of the many opportunities to provide feedback on our efforts.

Keep In Touch With Your Child's School Information

Staying in touch and informed on your son or daughters education is very important. Platte County SD 1 uses the Powerschool student information system as an easy, efficient way for parents to get a wide variety of information. From grades and attendance to test scores, Powerschool offers a simple online option for parents to track their students achievement.

2016-2017 District Calendar

In response to many requests to have a single district calendar for all six school’s activities and events, PCSD #1 has created a calendar to do just that. Now parents, students and staff can view events for all six schools, just one school or a combination of schools if you have students in multiple buildings. Our goal is to better communicate all of our happenings in one clear, concise location.

All schools and district events will show for the current month. Using the navigation arrows in the upper left corner you can proceed forward or backward to future or prior months. In the upper right corner of the calendar you can change the format of the calendar to show in weeks or months. The Print button allows you to customize date ranges, activities or events that can be sent to your printer or saved as a pdf.

To customize which schools you wish to view events for, click on the drop down arrow immediately to the right of the Agenda tab in the upper right corner. All schools will have checkboxes selected defaulting to show all six schools and the district events. Click to de-select schools you do not wish to view events for and the calendar will automatically update to your selection.

We hope this calendar is just another way we can better communicate activities, meetings, and gatherings of our students, parents and staff. If you have any suggestions to improve our calendar, please contact Vicki Hechtner at or Dennis Fischer at
