Proposal Seeks to Eliminate Superintendent Of Public Instruction

CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) — A bipartisan group of lawmakers is proposing a constitutional amendment to eliminate the state superintendent of public instruction.

The proposal would assign the responsibility for overseeing Wyoming’s public education system to the governor.

The proposal would need a two-thirds vote in each house of the Legislature before it would be placed on the 2016 general election statewide ballot. If voters approve, the change would not be effective until 2019, meaning whoever is elected superintendent this year would be the last.

The proposal comes as the Legislature, Gov. Matt Mead and current Superintendent Cindy Hill have been battling over the superintendent’s powers and duties. The state Supreme Court recently ruled unconstitutional a new law removing the superintendent as head of the state Education Department.
