Information Regarding the LCSD#2 Recreation District
The primary purpose of the Laramie County School District #2 (LCSD#2) Recreation District is to maintain present facilities, develop future facilities, and to support programs that provide recreational value for students and the community.
The recreation district is funded primarily by the 1 mill on the assessed valuation of the school district levied by the LCSD#2 Board of Trustees pursuant to W.S. 18-9-201. The LCSD#2 Board of Trustees has the discretion to levy the recreation 1 mill each year.
