Hill back at Dept. of Ed.

Superintendent of Public Instruction Cindy Hill has returned to work after Judge Thomas Campbell last week issued a final judgment on which parts of the controversial SF-104 “Hill Bill” were unconstitutional. In response, Governor Matt Mead commented, “The State of Wyoming requested an expeditious resolution to this matter – with the goal of moving forward from the Supreme Court decision as quickly as possible. The Superintendent had the opportunity to assume leadership of the Wyoming Department of Education for several weeks while reserving all her arguments. She refused to return. I am pleased the Court has issued an order that brings finality to this matter.” Hill returned to the Department of Education on Monday, saying that she had been anticipating the order and her staff had been “preparing and working with the WDE and the governor’s office to ensure a smooth and timely transition.”
