Wyoming’s newly appointed Director of Education Rich Crandall is busy getting acquainted with Wyoming’s Education system.  Crandall began his new duties August first. 

He was heavily involved in education as a politician in Arizona and he’s now running the Wyoming Department of Education and working with legislators to implement education policy in the state. 

Many in the state are concerned about the dropout rate in Wyoming’s schools.  State Director of Education Rich Crandall says in addressing the problem the goal should be to continue to engage and challenge students. 

Crandall says the best way to turn things around is to focus on improving the education experience.

Governor Matt Mead says the newly appointed Director of the Wyoming Department of Education will bring fresh ideas to the state. 

Rich Crandall will take over the day-to-day duties of running the Department after those duties were removed from Superintendent Cindy Hill.  Mead says state residents will be impressed with Crandall.

“He is focused like a laser on education, on students, on teachers, on principals, superintendents and importantly parents on what they want to see in the educational system.”
