OKLAHOMA CITY - For many parents, today is the greatest day of the year. For thousands of students, today is probably not at the top of the list.
Summer vacation is over for 40,000 Oklahoma City Public School children.
It is also a big day for the district's new superintendent, Rob Neu. He says he has big plans for his first year.
The new superintendent spent his first day riding the bus and engaging with children.
Neu has big hopes for the troubled district. He says it is time to foster a new atmosphere of success.
The superintendent's goal is to recruit and retain the very best teachers and school administrators.
He plans to make sure teachers have the materials, the tools and instructional development they need so that they can meet the needs of their children every day.
