After a lengthy closed-door meeting, the Bixby School Board takes no action regarding allegations of sexual assault involving members of the football squad. The board wants more information.

That information is being gathered regarding a 16-year-old football player's allegations that he was sexually assaulted by several of his teammates during an event at the superintendent's house.

Bixby Board of Education President Ron Schnare said in a statement several interviews have been conducted in an internal investigation by the school district's outside legal counsel and the Bixby High School administration.

A search warrant filed in Tulsa district court accuses administrators at the high school of waiting days before reporting the September incident. Investigators have seized the cellphones of Superintendent Kyle Wood and other school officials and given them a Dec. 1 deadline to turn over their emails.
