Metro Technology Centers Seeks Superintendent/CEO
Oklahoma State Boards Association retained to conduct search

OKLAHOMA CITY –  At the retirement of Superintendent/CEO Mr. Bob Parrish, Metro Technology Centers is seeking qualified candidates to lead the district into the next decade.  Bob has served the district for 21 years in various capacities, most recently as Superintendent/CEO since 2017.  

The Board of Education selected the Oklahoma State School Boards Association (OSSBA) to assist in the search.  Board President Matt Latham said, "We recognize that the success of an organization begins with its leadership, and we are looking forward to a search process that maximizes feedback from community stakeholders, our staff and our students. Input from the diverse community we serve will be important as we search for the next leader of Metro Technology Centers."

The search and selection process will include extensive stakeholder involvement.  OSSBA is conducting online surveys of Metro Tech employees, students, business and community leaders to identify the characteristics, experience and skills required of the next superintendent.  

"Metro Tech is needed, perhaps now more than ever, as a partner in our community's future economic development,” Latham said. “We are excited at the opportunity to find a leader that is ready and able to guide our district as we work to meet the challenges that our community is facing and will continue to face down the road.”

OSSBA has performed successful superintendent searches for over 70 districts in Oklahoma; most recently for Moore-Norman Technology Center, Oklahoma City, Purcell and Chickasha school districts.  

Applications are being accepted at the OSSBA online job board through April 24th at www.ossba.org.

Metro Tech has four campuses providing secondary and postsecondary career programs, lifelong learning education and customized business training. Metro Tech has been partnering with business to develop to Oklahoma City’s workforce since 1979.
