Bixby School Board begins search for new superintendent
BIXBY, Okla. (KTUL) —
The Bixby School Board has signed a contract with the Oklahoma State School Boards Association (OSSBA) to aid them in their search for a new superintendent.
The search comes after former Bixby Public Schools Superintendent Kyle Wood resigned amid a sexual assault investigation.
The contract with the OSSBA will cost the district $6,000, in addition to some possible fees that may arise later in the search.
Bixby Public Schools will begin accepting applications within the next week. Applications will be taken for about five to six weeks before starting the interview process.
The Bixby School Board says they hope to begin interviewing candidates mid-March and hire the new superintendent during the first week of April.
The school board and OSSBA collaborated and decided they are focusing primarily on academics and politics for the next superintendent, among other things.
