GILLETTE, Wyo. — State Superintendent of Public Instruction Cindy Hill says management changes in the Wyoming Education Department are causing the agency to fall behind on providing some education data.

Hill blames the breakup of the department's information management staff, which was largely dismantled and transferred to other agencies.

But the interim director of the agency says the problem is a result of employee turnover that occurred under Hill's watch before she was removed as head of the department earlier this year.

In a letter to lawmakers last week, interim director Jim Rose says staffing and agency priorities made when Hill ran the department resulted in data not being collected properly.

Rose suggested that the data can be corrected but it will be delayed.
