Ex-chief of Department of Education says handful of employees have quit since Hill's return

Share/Save/Bookmark

CASPER, Wyoming — The man who temporarily ran the Wyoming Department of Education says a handful of employees have quit since Superintendent Cindy Hill was restored to power and that more resignations could be coming.

The Casper Start Tribune reported Tuesday (http://tinyurl.com/mttb94q ) that former department director Rich Crandall declined to identify the employees who left.

He says some department employees have one or more job offers and that he's written about 10 letters of recommendation.

Hill, an elected official, returned to the department Monday after about 15 months. Lawmakers unhappy with her performance passed a law stripping her of her authority, but the state Supreme Court ruled the law was unconstitutional.

Crandall was appointed to run the department after the law passed.

Education department spokesman Travis Hoff declined to comment on any resignations.
