Sheridan County District #3 Curriculum
Sheridan 3 strives to develop and maintain a core curriculum that guarantees each of its students will have an equal opportunity to learn and the necessary time to learn it. To this end, all teachers K-12 have received training in quality assessment practices through Marzano Research consultants provided by the Wyoming Department of Education. The district is in step with the state of Wyoming's adoption of the standards process.

Sheridan County District #3 Grading Philosophy
We believe that grading is to be an intentional way for teachers to track their students’ progress and achievements. Sheridan 3 employs standards based grading practices across all grade levels K-12. K-6 has only a standards based report card and 7-12 has a report card that is a combination of the traditional letter grades and a standards based report card. For more information on the specifics of this process at Sheridan 3, please see our Standards Referenced Grading Handbook.
