Wyoming State School Superintendent Jillian Balow announced her resignation on Thursday. Balow said that she has accepted the position of Superintendent of Public Instruction at the Virginia Department of Education.
Governor Mark Gordon said Balow’s experience and expertise will be missed. He wished her well in her new role. The superintendent’s resignation is effective January 16th.
Governor Gordon is informing the Republican Party Central Committee, which will have 15 days to submit three candidates to the Governor for consideration. The Governor will then have five days to appoint a new superintendent from the names submitted. That individual will serve for the remainder of Balow’s term.
