Chickasha Public Schools

No action was taken following a special Chickasha Board of Education meeting on Tuesday night. 

Board members met in executive session to discuss the employment of Superintendent Dr. Jack Herron. 

Board members went behind closed doors just after the meeting began at 7 p.m. and returned to the meeting room two and half hours later to adjourn. 

Chickasha Board of Education, Doug Brown, submitted his resignation letter a few days before the meeting. He defended the superintendent and said he did not want to be involved in a decision he disagreed with. 

"Current members of the board have determined after only two months of membership, one with only weeks of board membership, that Dr. Herron needs to be removed and another superintendent  found," Brown said in the letter. 

"Dr. Herron is a decent and honorable man. He is a model superintendent with a deep reservoir of talent and experience that spans over 50 years of dedicated service to the education of Oklahoma youth. Most school boards would regard him as a treasure. It is unfortunate that a majority of our current board members do not," Brown said.
