School superintendent Craig McVay, 52, is leaving Roff Public Schools after three and one-half years to return to his hometown of El Reno.
“We hate to see him go. He’s done a great job for our school and been a visionary leader,” said Roff School Board President Kaycie Sheppard. “I wish him the best of luck. Hopefully we can continue to move the school forward in the direction we’ve been going.”
McVay will be replaced on an interim basis by Roff Elementary School Principal Scott Morgan, who was appointed to the position at the last school board meeting in early December.
All of these changes are effective Jan. 2.
McVay will be replacing El Reno Superintendent Janet Tippens, whose tenure ends on Jan. 1 in that district.
McVay admits the timing is unusual, but the opportunity for advancement and a return to his roots were too much to pass up.
His annual salary at Roff was $80,000. That will increase to $112,000 in the El Reno school system. He will also be going from a school of about 350 students to overseeing a school of approximately 2,500 students.
