The imbroglio involving Oklahoma City Public Schools and its former superintendent Rob Neu deepens.

Ed Allen, Oklahoma City chapter president of American Federation of Teachers, recently submitted a freedom of information request with the district regarding Neu’s absenteeism since he was hired in 2014.

During that time, reported, Neu was absent 125.5 days.

We essentially had a part-time superintendent,” Allen told “Leaders lead in front. They don’t lead from behind, and he was definitely behind.”

Records show Neu’s annual salary was $240,000.

District officials approved a separation agreement with Neu in late April. He is on administrative leave through July and will not return to the district, reported.
