(Wyo.)-Board Of Education Members Concerned About Legislation
CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) - Some members of the Wyoming State Board of Education are voicing concerns about major changes to the board's role proposed in the Legislature.
House Bill 91 would establish the board as a separate operating agency of state government. It also would move four vacant employee positions and funds from the Wyoming Department of Education to the board and pay board members for their added duties in carrying out education reform.
The bill also would remove the state superintendent of public instruction as a voting member of the board. The superintendent would remain on the board as an ex officio member.
While board members have concerns, they said they defer to the legislators and do not plan to take any stand on proposed legislation.
