Superintendent & Board Chairman Resign


In Oklahoma...

The Oklahoma County District Attorney and police are looking into the 21 allegations against Oklahoma City Superintendent John Q.Porter. School board members called a special meeting on Wednesday and voted 6-1 to accept Porter's resignation.

The criminal investigation centers on allegations that Porter misused school district funds.

The board agreed to pay Porter more than $325,000. Officials said Porter will be paid more than $71,000 for his time through June 2008 as well as more than $255,000 from an Oklahoma City Public Schools foundation account.

School board Chairman Cliff Hudson also resigned on Wednesday. Hudson had offered a couple of weeks ago to step down if Porter would do the same. Officials confirmed that Hudson resigned as part of the district's settlement with Porter.
