Cheyenne, WY (AP) - State schools Superintendent Cindy Hill says she won't wait to resume her duties as head of the Department of Education.

Hill announced Friday that she will return to the agency's offices in Cheyenne on Monday morning. That could set up a conflict with Richard Crandall, who was appointed by the governor to run the education department.

Wyoming's Supreme Court overturned a 2013 law that removed the elected superintendent as department head. Legislators enacted the law after complaints about Hill's performance. The case is now before a lower court.

Hill says Gov. Matt Mead and lawmakers have had plenty of time to resolve the issue but have only stalled.
