The leader of the Oklahoma City School Board and three others will as­sist a con­sul­tant with the search for a new su­per­in­ten­dent. Chair­woman Paula Lewis an­nounced Wed­nes­day that she had ap­pointed her­self and board mem­bers Rebecca Budd, Carrie Cop­per­noll Ja­cobs and Ruth Veales to work with the Oklahoma State School Boards As­so­ci­a­tion on the se­lec­tion and hir­ing process.

“This com­mit­tee will be meet­ing soon to de­velop a time­line for the search, which will in­clude ef­forts to en­gage the com­mu­nity and other key stake­hold­ers as we make our rec­om­men­da­tion,” Lewis said in a state­ment.

The eight-mem­ber panel voted to hire the school boards as­so­ci­a­tion Mon­day night.

The as­so­ci­a­tion will work with the board com­mit­tee to es­tab­lish a search time­line, ad­ver­tise the va­cancy na­tion­ally, re­spond to in­quiries about the open­ing and sched­ule in­ter­views with fi­nal­ists, among other ser­vices. The to­tal cost of the su­per­in­ten­dent search will not ex­ceed $30,000 with­out board ap­proval, ac­cord­ing to a con­tract signed by Lewis on Mon­day.

Rebecca Kaye is the dis­trict’s act­ing su­per­in­ten­dent. She as­sumed that role Feb. 1 fol­low­ing Su­per­in­ten­dent Au­rora Lora’s res­ig­na­tion.
