OKLAHOMA CITY – The Oklahoma City Public School District is asking for your input when it comes to the search for a new superintendent.

The district is asking parents and students what leadership traits they should be looking for in the next superintendent.

Former Oklahoma City Superintendent Karl Springer retired in August.

Since then, former Oklahoma State Secretary of Commerce Dave Lopez has been serving as the interim superintendent.

He will stay in that post until the end of the school year.

Now, the district is announcing a series of public meetings across the city to help find a permanent leader.

The first meeting is scheduled for Thursday at Northwest Classen High School from 7 p.m. to 8:30 p.m.

There are three more coming up the week after Thanksgiving.

The other meetings are as follows:

  • Monday, Dec. 2 from 7 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. at Star Spencer High School.
  • Tuesday, Dec. 3 from 7 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. at Douglass High School.
  • Thursday, Dec. 5 from 7 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. at Southeast High School.
