Anderson, along with special education paraprofessional Gina Sims, is anticipating the arrival of the school’s first students and working with partners in Evanston and neighboring communities. Hayden Peak, a campus of Wyoming’s Region V BOCES, is a day school for special education students in kindergarten through 12th grade. Anderson said the goal is to “provide an alternative setting for kids with disabilities who also have some social or emotional difficulties that make it difficult for them to succeed in a traditional school setting.”
