Wyoming Considers Adding New School District


After Montana school districts were overpaid millions of dollars by the U.S. Department of the Interior, Park County Wyoming officials are considering creating a school district for students living in Mammoth Hot Springs.

The consideration is supported by more than one-hundred Mammoth residents.

Right now, students living in Mammoth go to school in Gardiner Montana. Al Nash with the National Park Services said if the petition moves forward then a boundary committee will be created.

That committee will decide whether to expand an existing school district in Wyoming or create a new one in the park.

The proposal would then go to the Wyoming state board of education for approval. Wyoming would provide funding for that district and an agreement would be signed to include students living in the park.

"The mechanism would exist for Wyoming to provide funding for the school district. Then, that school district would be able to enter into an agreement to provide funding in support of students living in Mammoth, but attending school in Gardiner," said Al Nash, Yellowstone National Park spokesman.

Currently, 37 students from Mammoth Hot Springs attend school in Gardiner.
