CHEYENNE, Wyoming — Wyoming public schools Superintendent Cindy Hill says she has cooperated with an inquiry into the operations of the state Education Department.
But Hill is declining to discuss specifics until the inquiry has concluded.
In February, Gov. Matt Mead created the inquiry to check out concerns about how the agency was being run in recent years under Hill and previous superintendents.
The concerns came to a head this past winter when the state Legislature and Mead enacted major changes in how the state's K-12 education system is run. The biggest change replaced the statewide elected superintendent as head of the Education Department with a director appointed by the governor.
Hill is challenging the constitutionality of the new law in a lawsuit that is awaiting a hearing before the state Supreme Court.
