School Districts are governed by Wyoming State Statutes §21-3-101 through §21-3-501. Platte County School District #2 operates Guernsey-Sunrise School, which is a K-12 facility with approximately 250 students and 75 staff members. PCSD#2 serves the Guernsey and Hartville areas. PCSD#2 has not created a distinct recreation district but one property tax mill is levied within the boundaries of PCSD#2 pursuant to Wyoming State Statute §18-9-201(b) and is distributed directly from the County Treasurer to PCSD#2 for the purposes of providing public recreation.

The Tri-City Parks & Recreation District is an independent board that is primarily funded by Platte County School District #2 and the Town of Guernsey. The board is made up of numerous individuals, one of which is a liaison from the PCSD#2 school board. To become a board member interested individuals need to write a letter to the Superintendent of Schools who will verify that the interested party lives within the boundaries of PCSD#2. The Superintendent will then forward the applicant to the Tri-City Parks & Rec. board for their consideration.
