The board voted unanimously to end the employment of Superintendent Steve Woolf. A statement was released Wednesday morning regarding the separation agreement:

Mr. Steve Woolf has served as Superintendent for Woodland Park School District Re-2, in Woodland Park, Colorado, since July 1, 2018 and his last day will be November 30, 2020.

The Board of Education fully investigated the details surrounding the incident that took place on August 28, 2020. In consideration of the ensuing actions and the impacts resulting from the entirety of the circumstances, the District and Mr. Woolf have reached a mutually approved separation agreement. The District is appreciative of Mr. Woolf’s job performance during his employment. Mr. Woolf is thankful to have served the Woodland Park School District Board of Education, teachers, staff, students and parents. Both parties look forward to serving the community and wish each other well.

The district said Assistant Superintendent Linda Murray will continue as interim superintendent for the remainder of the 2020-21 school year.

The action comes after Woolf was charged with DUI in late August with a trial date for that charge is pending.
