Goshen County superintendents resignation accepted during special meeting

January 5, 2019

TORRINGTON, Wyo. — Goshen County School Superintendent Jean Chrostoski is ending her career in education.

“I’ve been at it for 24 years, and it’s a high profile position with no margin for error,” Chrostoski said. “I just think it’s time to let someone else take over.”

Chrostoski joined the district during the 2013-14 year and was on her sixth year as superintendent at Goshen County Schools. Prior to moving to Wyoming, she worked as a teacher, principal and superintendent in various districts in the central part of Illinois. She told the Star-Herald Friday that she submitted a letter to the District Board of Trustees on Jan. 2, stating her intention to retire. The District board accepted Chrostoski’s retirement at a special meeting Thursday evening.

Chrostoski said she plans to stay in Goshen County after her retirement.

“I would still like to work doing something, just not something this time-consuming,” she said.

Chrostoski’s retirement will go into effect on Feb. 1, and an interim superintendent will be hired to fulfill Chrostoki’s duties from the date of her retirement until July 1.
