CHEYENNE, Wyo. — At least five people, including Director Richard Crandall, have resigned from the Wyoming Department of Education since Superintendent Cindy Hill was reinstated as the department's top official last Friday.

Dean Fausset, of the Wyoming Department of Administration and Information, said Wednesday that Crandall and senior human resources adviser Karen Kelly resigned Friday.

Their resignations followed a ruling by a district court judge that most of last year's law removing Hill from the agency is unconstitutional.

Fausset said three more people in Crandall's leadership team have resigned.

Hill says several others may resign as well. She noted that resignations are common with a leadership change.

The department employs about 140 people.
