A county school district in Wyoming has agreed to pilot a new student teaching program from the University of Wyoming while in the midst of overhauling its College of Education curriculum.

The Laramie Boomerang reported Saturday that Albany County School District No. 1 board members agreed Wednesday to the yearlong program for two university students starting next year.

Officials say the students would work under the supervision of a full-time elementary school teacher for a year.

Officials say student teaching previously involved one semester without pay and the new program places a student teacher in a district for a full academic year.
