The Oklahoma City School Board will discuss the superintendent and his executive team at a two-day special meeting beginning Friday night.

The board will meet in executive session Friday night and then conduct open business Saturday.

For the Friday night meeting, the agenda lists discussion items including the superintendent, his cabinet, executive directors and other administrators.

School board Chairwoman Lynne Hardin denied rumors that the board is restructuring the district's central office administration.

Items are listed so they can be discussed if necessary to comply with the state Open Meeting Act, Hardin said.

“We are just so limited,” she said. “If we don't put it on the agenda, then we can't talk about it at all.”

Hardin said the meeting has been planned for months, and the timing is good.

Three key administrators are retiring this year: Superintendent Karl Springer, Executive Director of Elementary Education DeAnn Davis and Linda Ware Toure, executive director of secondary education and school turnaround.
