Sperry Schools are Considering Review of Sisney's Tenure There

TULSA, Okla. (AP) — A former school superintendent who has been indicted on bribery and conspiracy charges could face further investigation into possible wrongdoing at another school district where he once worked.

Former Broken Arrow Public Schools superintendent Jim Sisney was fired by that district in 2008 amid allegations of wrongdoing. He was hired in 2009 as superintendent of Sperry Public Schools and retired in 2011.

Sperry Schools Business Manager Susan Weatherman indicated Friday the school board might review the two years Sisney held the position to look for any improprieties.

An indictment unsealed Thursday alleges Sisney accepted two all-session tickets to the 2007 men's NCAA Final Four tournament in Atlanta while he was Broken Arrow superintendent from Windstream Corporation, which supplied telecommunication services to the district.

Sisney has denied any wrongdoing.
