Deer Creek superintendent takes job at Mustang
Sean McDaniel asked the Deer Creek School Board on Oct. 9 to be released from his contract.
McDaniel 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.
McDaniel previously served for two years as superintendent in Englewood, Colo. Before that he worked in Tulsa-area schools for 20 years.
He will assume the position in Mustang vacated in August by Bonnie Lightfoot, a longtime educator who retired for health reasons.
