The Deer Creek School District is seeking input on the hiring of a new superintendent.
FROM STAFF REPORTS Published: November 7, 2012

The Oklahoma State School Boards Association is assisting the Deer Creek School District in the search for a new superintendent.

The association and the Deer Creek board of education are asking for the staff and community's assistance in gathering information and will hold forums to provide information about the search process.

The forums will allow the staff and community to provide input that will assist in the superintendent search.

School district residents are asked to go to to complete a survey and are invited to attend a designated forum.

Deer Creek Superintendent Sean McDaniel is leaving his post to assume the helm at Mustang Public Schools. McDaniel's last day at Deer Creek was Thursday. He was hired as superintendent at Deer Creek in January 2010.

His hiring was on the heels of a $140 million bond measure passed in 2009 to fund construction of a second middle school, a new operations facility and expansion at the high school.

He assumed on Monday the position in Mustang vacated in August by Bonnie Lightfoot, a longtime educator who retired for health reasons.
