Bixby Schools Sends Letter To Parents Concerning Sexual Assault Investigation

Posted: Updated:
BIXBY, Oklahoma -

Bixby Public Schools is searching for its next superintendent.

Friday, the school board hired the Oklahoma State School Board Association to help them find Kyle Wood's replacement.

Wood resigned as superintendent following allegations four high school football players sexually assaulted a teammate at his house.

The board will pay $6,000 for the association to conduct a six-week search with two rounds of candidate interviews.

They said they hope to have the new superintendent hired by the end of April.

Friday's meeting came a day after the Bixby Board of Education held a meeting Thursday and did not discuss the sexual assault investigation, but after the meeting, interim Superintendent Lydia Wilson released a letter sent to parents in which she said the district will continue to cooperate with any ongoing legal investigations.

Thursday's meeting was the first for the board in 2018. It was also the first meeting since new information was released about the investigation into a reported sexual assault by football players on another player at the home of former Superintendent Dr. Kyle Wood.

No one has officially filed to run for Schnare's seat, so the board said it will accept applications for the position until February 1st. 

The Bixby board is holding a special meeting Friday at 3 p.m. in regard to its search for a new superintendent.
