Niobrara County School District #1
(Superintendent George Mirich) We’re happy to welcome Niobrara County, WY as a new partner district! Having previous experience with the CLI Model as a principal in another district, Mr. Mirich said he needed to bring CLI to Niobrara 1. We’re looking forward to helping them develop systems and begin curriculum work with three content areas this fall.
Crawford Public Schools
(Superintendent Eugene “Mo” Hanks) We’re excited to introduce the CLI Model to the staff at Crawford Public Schools this fall and lay the foundation for curriculum work with their Curriculum Coordinating Council. Throughout the year the CCC will make essential decisions for developing a local curriculum and implementing it through instruction and aligned assessments.
Lincoln County SD #1
(Superintendent Teresa Chaulk) Lincoln County SD #1 came on board with CLI in 2013-2014. Superintendent Teresa Chaulk wears many hats there, including that of the Curriculum Director. Every subject area at LCSD #1 has been through the model and are using the work for what it was intended…to improve learning! Mrs. Chaulk says that her teachers now know the CLI process is “the way we do things here.”
Niobrara Public Schools
A partner district since 2017-2018, Niobrara Public Schools is continuing their partnership with CLI. Superintendent Margaret Sandoz leads this school district located near the border of Nebraska and South Dakota. There are approximately 220 students attending grades K-12. Teachers work with students in a content area for three to four years which translates into greater student success.
Park County SD #6
CLI began working with Park County SD 6 in the spring of 2012. Superintendent Tim Foley continues to lead curriculum, instruction, and assessment initiatives in Cody. Only 50 miles from the gates of Yellowstone, students in PCSD 6 have the first-hand experience in the beauty and history of the area. These features are emphasized in the local curriculum when it is developed in all content areas.
Pennoyer SD 79
(Superintendent Kristin Kopta) Partnering since 2017-2018, CLI is excited to continue work with Pennoyer School District 79. Pennoyer is a K-8 district near Chicago that serves Norridge, Harwood Heights, and Norwood Park Township. The administration and staff in this small district are providing leadership for changes toward improved student learning.
Sublette County SD #9
Big Piney, WY
(Superintendent Charles Jenks) 2021-2022 marks the twelvth year of CLI service to Sublette County SD #9 with all curriculum revised. The district is continuing to explore and implement best practice strategies for the implementation of standards-aligned curriculum and the development of local, aligned assessments to measure student success.
Superior Public Schools
CLI began a partnership with Superior Public Schools in January of 2019. Superintendent Marty Kobza is a welcomed veteran of the process as he has worked with the CLI Model while leading three other school districts! Located close to the Kansas-Nebraska border, Superior has around 450 students.
Sweetwater County SD #1
Rock Springs, WY
(Superintendent Kelly McGovern) We’re happy to continue working with Jodie Garner, Chief Academic Officer, and all of the great educators in this district who have consistently been seeing improvements in assessment scores. A partner since 2014-2015, every content area has gone through the CLI Model and uses a systematic approach to improve teaching.
USD 244 & USD 245 ( WATT Consortium)
Burlington, KS & LeRoy-Gridley, KS
USD 244 Superintendent, Craig Marshall, and USD 245 Superintendent, Matt Thomsen, have continued the partnership initiated in the 2013-2014 school year. Both districts are able to share CLI resources and expertise in this consortium, and each will have representation on committees to develop curriculum, instructional plans, and assessments. This consortium work paves the way for networking support across the Coffey County Schools.
