JACKSON, Wyo. — Teton County School District today announced the resignation of assistant superintendent Jeff Daugherty.
Daugherty joined the District in 2016, replacing Chief Operating Officer Brad Barker, who left the job after becoming the district’s first COO in 2014. The job was repurposed as assistant superintendent but the duties remained largely the same as when Barker held the position—overseeing transportation, facilities and maintenance, food service, human resources, and finance.
Daugherty has accepted the position of planning and construction program administrator for Laramie County School District #1 in Cheyenne. He will remain with TCSD through mid-August.
“I have truly loved my role at Teton County School District, and I am proud of what we have accomplished during my tenure,” Daugherty said. “I feel an enormous sense of gratitude for the operations team. I am continuously impressed by their relentless commitment to our students and their families. The district’s operational services are well-positioned and prepared to move into the future.”
Superintendent Dr. Gillian Chapman thanked Daugherty for his years of service, noting that over the last four years he took the lead on the construction of Munger Mountain Elementary School, which was completed on time and under budget. Daugherty also led the effort to expand JHMS and participated in the construction of the bus shelters near Colter Elementary School and Jackson Hole Middle School.
Somehow, Daugherty also found time to coach the Jackson Broncs defensive line during football season.
School board chair Betsy Carlin expressed the board’s appreciation for Daugherty’s dedication and hard work, also noting his ability to present complex issues with levity and good humor.
“While I am sad to leave the district and the community, this change will allow me to spend more time with my wife and children while continuing to serve the students of Wyoming. I want to thank the district and the community for the opportunity to serve Jackson Hole students,” Daugherty added.
A determination has not yet been made on whether TCSD will fill the position or not.
