CCSD#1 Superintendent resigns

By Sarah Pridgeon

Lon Streib tendered his resignation as Superintendent of the Crook County School District at a special meeting of the Board of Trustees on Monday. His wife, Mary, also submitted her resignation as Moorcroft’s speech and language pathologist.

Both resignations were accepted by the board with a unanimous vote and will be effective as of October 31.

Though administration of the school district has been subject to much scrutiny recently, with a petition calling for Streib’s dismissal addressed at last month’s meeting of the board, the resignation was tendered for personal reasons and is said to be unrelated to the recent turmoil. Further details were unavailable at press time.
