Wyo. Senate Looks To Advance Education Revamp

Wyoming State Legislature

CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) — The Wyoming Senate will consider sending to the state House a bill changing who runs the state Department of Education.

Senate File 104 would remove the state superintendent of public instruction as administrative head of the agency in favor of a new director appointed by the governor.

Senators have debated the bill two times on the floor and will do so again on Wednesday before deciding whether to advance it to the House.

Supporters of the proposal say it would entrust delivery of Wyoming’s K-12 public education into the hands of a professional administrator and put the state’s education reform efforts back on track. Opponents question giving the governor more power and making such a major change in the responsibility of a statewide elected official.
