$7000 bond for both charges. The bond amount should have been for what was wasted on his watch.

no that's what i'm talking about......

in the past it was just too easy to let a superintendent resign and then he would resurface a year or two later somewhere else.

The attorneys will make lots money. The school system may get 10% of their money back eventually. The worst offenders may get a little prison time too. And the taxpayers and the kids will get cheated. It's called Oklahoma justice. If they would really do justice then all of the others out there stealing public money would at least be more careful!

The scool board had a complete lapse of fidicuary responsbilities inthe buying of didtrict supplies. No oversight was iin place, to control cost, and a no bid contracts and buying was occurring in excess cost to the school. And apparently only one person had assumed buying powerand that with no actual responibility. Where and what was the school board doing in all that time. It sure was not doing its job.

This is called "Carma". For every co-worker that got to listen to the welcome back speech we had a few years ago, from Gary, telling us that "if you don't like your job, get in your car and go down the road and move on". CARMA BABY You deserve this, for stealing from our students. I just hope that all involved are caught...

A few school boards in the state are run by the non-elected superintendents--which this process is backwards. Often you have honest board members that are stewarts of the taxpayer monies and the school administrators and other board members harrass them into support of whatever they want. I had a friend that was on a local school board, that got many complaints from parents and teachers about the superintendent. This person told the other board members they should investigate the complaints by their patrons. My honest friend was harrassed by the other board members and the superintendent into resigning. Later the administrator was finally forced out for the same complaints.
When board positions come open whether they are regular schools or vo-tech people need to be getting involved and not allow these superintendents to pick their friends for the BOEs. I think that is why so many Tulsa County administrators are paid such high salaries. You could hire 6 or more teachers for what these people are paid.
What is sad there are many BOE members and administrators that want what is best for kids and they are getting lumped in with these people that got into education for the wrong purpose.

They need to look into the Jenks Supt and several past school board members.

Skiatook Public Schools is not the demon here. This is an exorcism. We have a fine school, wonderful teachers, exemplary principals, and excellent students. Don't label those devils as Skiatook. The proud Town of Skiatook is Skiatook Public Schools. We'll recover from this. It'll take a little sorting out (and we may be reeling a little) but we will recover. Look at how the community came together to gather those signatures. We gathered almost seven thousand registered voters from Tulsa County and Skiatook is mostly Osage County. We'll be continuing even though the devil seemed to have taken over some of our hired and elected leaders. The ministers will minister and the teachers will teach and we will continue beyond this scandal.

Are you talking about Carma Burd who was a counselor or Karma like what you put out into the universe comes back to you? Just clarifying and confused.

Has anyone noticed that the scandals within the Skiatook school system started quite awhile back when Redeagle was Supt? First, the video camera scandal and now Johnson and this? I remember when I was in High school in the early 90's our administration were people that cared about the district and made us proud. Unfortunately those gentlemen retired. What happened? How did it go downhill so fast after they left? Sounds like a poor school board might be who is hiring these horrible administrators.

don't just stop with this mess, check out the drop out reports and suspended students, which were not dropped. the high school for sure received money for students that were not attending school due to suspensions and for not attending school. what happened to that excess money?
there are a lot of people that know this information is true
