WOODLAND PARK, Colo. (KRDO) -- Former district superintendent Steve Woolf and the Woodland Park School District have mutually agreed to end Woolf's contract after an incident involving his arrest for driving under the influence earlier this year.

Woolf was placed on administrative leave following an incident on Aug. 28 near Divide, where a deputy was dispatched to a single-vehicle traffic accident. After arriving, the Teller County deputy stated he noticed Woolf's eyes were bloodshot and that he had a smell of alcohol coming from his breath. The deputy also observed him stumbling while walking and slurring his words.

The Woodland Park School District Board of Education said in a statement released Wednesday that it "fully investigated" the details of the incident, and the mutual decision was made to terminate Woolf's contract.

"Mr. Woolf is thankful to have served the Woodland Park School District Board of Education, teachers, staff, students, and parents," said the statement from WPSD. "Both parties look forward to serving the community and wish each other well."

Woolf's last day with the district was Nov. 30. He first started with the district on July 1, 2018.

Assistant Superintendent Linda Murray will continue as the Interim Superintendent for the remainder of the 2020-2021 school year, according to the district. The Board of Education says it's now searching for a new superintendent.

  1. So the city of WP got to pay for this person to be on Admin paid leave since 08-21-20 through 11-30-20. So only 3 months of his salary was paid out where he did nothing and was paid quite well for it too.
