OPS board to conduct another national search, name an interim superintendent

Jun 4, 2012

The Omaha Public Schools board will again conduct a national search for a new superintendent.

Board members voted unanimously Monday night to begin a new search. That followed a vote Saturday afternoon to accept the resignation of Nancy Sebring. She was set to become OPS' new superintendent July 1. Sebring resigned after reports surfaced that she sent and received sexually explicit emails from her official Des Moines Public Schools account.

The OPS board will also name an interim superintendent. Right now there's no timeline for that to happen.

OPS superintendent John Mackiel is retiring at the end of this month after 40 years with the school district.
