Omaha Performing Arts offers five different series: Broadway, Dance, Family, Jazz and Showcase, formerly the Popular Series.
Executive Director Joan Squires says several of the shows offered during this season’s Broadway series are coming to Omaha for the first time. The season begins with Shrek! The Musical in October. Squires says that’s followed by Billy Elliot in November.
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.
Douglas County’s new fiscal year budget is once again up for discussion Tuesday.
County Commissioners will discuss the budget at their 9am meeting Tuesday. Two weeks ago, Finance Committee members grilled county department heads on their budget requests for the coming fiscal year, which begins July 1.
The County Board asked all departments to present flat budgets, and justify any requests for additional funding.
County Commissioners are scheduled to vote on the 2012-13 budget later this month.
