Cheyenne, WY (KGWN) - Superintendent of Public Instruction Cindy Hill sent an open letter to the Wyoming Legislature addressing concerns she has and concerns the legislature might have.

In the letter hill says she is concerned about suggestions that the reversal of SF 104 would result in a "mass exodus" of Wyoming Department of Education (WDE) employees and possible retaliation against WDE employees "is simply unfounded".

She also urges the State Board of Education to adopt content and performance standards only after full consultation with educators, parents and constituent and: "resist the urge to adopt national standards, especially when those 
standards conflict with Wyoming values. "
