CASPER, Wyo. (AP) - The Wyoming Legislature has hired a consultant to recommend if and how the state should modify education governance.

The Casper Star-Tribune reports Friday (https://bit.ly/1jtKpjI ) that the Joint Education Committee hired Maryland-based educational consultants Cross and Joftus. The firm will be paid $98,500 between June and March to interview representatives from several statewide educational agencies including the University of Wyoming and the Wyoming Board of Education.

The firm will review how those agencies operate and will issue its recommendations by October.

The study comes after recent failed efforts to remove Superintendent of Public Instruction Cindy Hill, as well efforts in the Legislature to eliminate her elected position.

Sen. Hank Coe, R-Cody, said at a meeting Thursday the consultant’s work is not a “witch hunt.”
