OKLAHOMA CITY — A human resources officer for Oklahoma City Public Schools is on suspension while the district investigates undisclosed allegations, officials confirmed Monday.
Director of Employee Engagement Shane Keenan was placed on paid leave Wednesday, district spokeswoman Courtney Morton said.
"Oklahoma City Public Schools (OKCPS) was made aware of allegations involving a district Human Resources staff member," Morton says in a statement. "These allegations are now being investigated by OKCPS.
"As is routine in these situations, the employee has been placed on Administrative Leave pending the result of the investigation. Because this is a personnel issue, we cannot provide any further comment at this time."
As employee engagement director, Keenan serves as a member of the district's human resources leadership team. He provides guidance on HR programs and supervision of various department processes, including hiring.
Keenan is responsible for leading and directing the employee relations, accreditation, onboarding and employee training and development functions of the HR Department.
Keenan oversees about a dozen department workers, Morton said. He is supervised by Janis Perrault, the district's chief human resources officer.
Oklahoma City Public Schools, the state's largest district, employees about 4,700 people. About half that number are teachers.
