Who decides how to implement the standards in Wyoming?

Technically, standards implementation is under the authority of the local school districts. However, the state assessments are mandated by the state and driven by the standards, which then drive the curriculum options and teaching methods. (Title 21 in Wyoming Statutes)

Wyoming has signed into the Smarter Balanced Assessment Consortium (SBAC), one of two federally funded assessments for the CCSS. The SBAC stated their intent to use federal funds to build a curriculum model. You can read about the close tie of standards, assessments, curriculum and more on page four under “Theory of Action”
