(Lander, Wyo.) – Fremont County School District 1 Superintendent Mike Bowman has confirmed that Assistant Superintendent for Business Services Kirk Schmidt has tendered his resignation.
“He’s going to be leaving us,” Bowman said in an interview.
Requests for comment from Schmidt have not yet been returned.
Bowman declined to say when Schmidt announced his intent to leave or why, but he said Schmidt’s last day is Friday, Aug. 30. While the resignation has not yet been formally accepted by the FCSD1 Board of Education, advertising for Schmidt’s replacement has begun.
“Kirk has done a tremendous job in this district,” Bowman said.
Bowman praised Schmidt’s work over the years in helping with the construction of three new school buildings. He also said Schmidt has helped run the district in a “fiscally sound manner.”
