Simmons cited his election in April as Wheatland municipal judge as the reason for his resignation.

“As a newly elected municipal judge, holding two elected positions of trust is prohibited by Supreme Court Rule,” Simmons said in his resignation letter. “Let me tell you that it has been my immense pleasure to work with a wonderful group of professionals for a wonderful and very important cause. Thank you for allowing me to be a part of such important and joyful work.”

Beth cited the press of personal and academic pursuits as the reason for his resignation.

“I leave the Board with many big and exciting things in my future, including a wedding, finishing my MBA studies, and a number of community projects,” Beth said in his resignation letter. “I also leave the Board with confidence in the leadership of the Board, the District, and the exceptional standards and professionalism of our teachers, professional staff, and support staff. “
