OKLAHOMA CITY – As thousands of teachers from across the state are protesting to make education a priority in the Sooner State, the Oklahoma City Public School District made a major announcement about the future of the district.
The district’s board of education has chosen a candidate to become the next superintendent of Oklahoma City Public Schools.
However, officials are not releasing the candidate’s name.
Tierney Tinnin, spokesperson for the district, released a statement saying, “The OKCPS Board of Education has selected candidate #1 contingent on the contract negotiations. A formal announcement of the lone candidate will be planned soon.”
Currently, Dave Lopez is serving as the interim superintendent.
