Skiatook board accepts president's resignation

SKIATOOK, Okla. (AP) - In the wake of a critical grand jury
report, Skiatook's school board has reorganized after accepting the
resignation of its president.

Kenneth Cooper, who had been on the board for seven years,
announced his resignation earlier this month after a grand jury
indicted the school's former superintendent for embezzlement and
bribery and said Cooper should be removed from office.

Cooper said then he hoped his resignation will help the
community heal. He has not been charged.

On Monday, Tim Allen became the board's new president. Also
during its meeting, the board spent 1 1/2 hours in executive
session, during which the employment of interim superintendent
Steve Williams was discussed. The board took no action on Williams
and did not publicly discuss his status.
