Wednesday and Thursday are Weather Aware days due to the potential for locally heavy rainfall. Beware of flooded road-ways and never drive around barricades or into water more than six inches deep. High rainfall rates may reduce visibility and also increase the risk of hydroplaning. Turn around, don’t drown! Isolated strong thunderstorms may develop late Wednesday afternoon, but widespread severe weather does not appear to be likely at this time.
THACKERVILLE, OK -- The Oklahoma Board of Education has issued fines for school districts who over spent on administration.
The Oklahoman reports Thackerville Public Schools is one of three districts being fined. The Board will withhold about $29,000 from state aid checks for the rest of the fiscal year.
The Thackerville payroll clerk says a buyout of former Superintendent David Herron's contract is what pushed costs above the legal limit.
Farris Public Schools also overspent, and was fined about $10,000 last month.
