OKLAHOMA CITY – The leader of the state’s largest school district is disputing reports that he is resigning from his position as superintendent.
On Monday, sources confirmed to NewsChannel 4 that Oklahoma City Public Schools Superintendent Rob Neu told board members that he would be resigning from that position.
A special board meeting is set for Thursday evening to discuss Neu’s employment with the district.
Neu is currently in Boston to attend the National School Boards Association conference.

The OKC Board of Education is planning on holding a special meeting to address this topic on Thursday (4/14) at 5:30pm, the OKCPS Board Clerk is in the process of formally filing the meeting,” Mark Myers, a spokesman for the district, said in a statement.

“I have not resigned. I am very disappointed that this was reported in the news media. I have no further comment at this time.”
Neu’s contract doesn’t end until June of next year.
