OPS meeting Monday to discuss, possibly vote on new superintendent

The Omaha Public Schools board has a special meeting Monday at noon to discuss and possibly vote on a superintendent candidate finalist.

OPS held public meetings last week with the three superintendent candidates. Wednesday, OPS’ current Assistant Superintendent of Curriculum and Learning, ReNae Kehrberg, took questions. Thursday’s meet and greet was with Daniel Nerad, superintendent of the Madison Metropolitan School District in Wisconsin. Last Friday, Des Moines Public Schools superintendent Nancy Sebring took questions on the achievement gap, leadership, and testing.

OPS is scheduled to name its next superintendent April 9th. Superintendent John Mackiel is retiring at the end of this school year.
