Deighan to resign as superintendent of city schools
Lawton Public Schools Superintendent Tom Deighan has been hired by the Duncan School District as its next superintendent.
Deighan informed the Lawton Public Schools staff of the decision in an email letter late Tuesday. In the letter, Deighan said he will submit his resignation to the Lawton Board of Education on Thursday night at its regular meeting. His resignation will be effective June 30.
Deighan has been superintendent of Lawton Public Schools since 2013 when longtime Superintendent Barry Beachaump retired.
