Wyoming schools chief says going back to work
Question of the Day
Her announcement came more than a month after the Wyoming Supreme Court overturned a 2013 law that removed the elected superintendent as a state department head.
Legislators enacted the law after complaints about Hill’s performance, and she was moved to a separate state office building the day after the law took effect.
“The time for waiting and deference has long since passed,” Hill said. “I must resume my duty as required by the constitution.”
“Otherwise I just think it’s a case of creating unnecessary chaos,” Mead said.
Hill said she will return to the agency’s main offices in Cheyenne at 8 a.m. Monday. The move could set up a conflict with Richard Crandall, who was appointed by the governor to run the education department.
“I don’t think that my moving over to the department and resuming my constitutional duties should be a problem,” Hill said.
Crandall said he would meet Hill Monday morning and she was welcome to enter the agency’s building where the general public is allowed.
But he made clear that “nobody is allowed to just walk in and take something over until the courts specifically say what the orders are.”
The state Supreme Court sided with Hill on Jan. 28 in her lawsuit challenging the law and denied a subsequent request by the state for a rehearing, However, the case won’t be resolved until a lower court issues a final ruling. Further legal proceedings and appeals could follow.
“These delay tactics fly in the face of the Supreme Court’s ruling,” she said. “We’re on uncharted ground, and I hope that the governor will hear my words and be responsive.”
