Numbers Released on 'No Confidence Vote'

Nearly 70 percent of the employees of Sheridan County School District 1 voted that they have “no confidence” in District Superintendent Marty Kobza, according to Judy Trohkimoinen.

She is a regional staff person for the Wyoming Education Association, and served as a consultant to the district 1 employees' association that called for the recent vote. In an email to Sheridan Media, she said 168 district employees were eligible to vote in the election, and 117 of the employees cast ballots.

She said 81 of those who voted cast “no confidence” ballots, and 36 voted to support the superintendent. Shannon Moline, who is president of the association, announced the voting results in a statement that she read to District 1 trustees at their meeting earlier this week. She didn't say how many of the employees cast ballots. The state education consultant said specific numbers related to the vote were not released at that time because the association wanted to focus on the message of the vote.

District association members in another letter released earlier to the board say their biggest issue with the district is a lack of trust, and claim a high level of fear among the district's employees.

Sheridan County School District 1 administers schools in Big Horn, Ranchester and Dayton.
