Removal of school administrators

On January 10, 2014, Interim Superintendent Dave Lopez announced plans to remove at least ten school administrators in response to poor records of academic performance. Lopez promised significant changes in an early January meeting with school board members after the publication of state educational assessments. A November report by the Oklahoma Superintendent of Public Instruction found that 65 out of 93 district schools experienced decreased test scores from previous years. Lopez has also promised placement of at least 100 district officials into schools to spur academic improvement. The superintendent's plan has gained support from board members including Lynne Hardin and Bob Hammack.[2]
