Today is the last day of the contract of Superintendent Rob Neu's contract with Oklahoma City Public Schools.
The embattled superintendent has not been in the job for several months.

 On April 25 the state's largest school district reached an agreement to part ways with him.

As for who will be the next superintendent could be decided as early as tomorrow morning. 
The OKCPS Board will have its regularly scheduled meeting at 9 a.m.
The very last item on the agenda is the hiring of the new superintendent.

Associate Superintendent Aurora Lora stepped in as Interim on April 15. However, two weeks ago it was discovered she does not have the Oklahoma state required certification to be a superintendent.  As a precaution the district requested a state waiver while she awaited test results for it.

If promoted, Aurora Lora would become the 10th person since 2000 to be named superintendent of Oklahoma City Public Schools.
