It’ll be the second facility located in an OPS high school, and the eighth school-based health center. Jeanee Weiss, Director of Healthy Futures for Building Bright Futures, says the seven existing sites served 4,300 children and families last school year. In addition to medical care, staff at the health centers can provide referrals and help families get enrolled in programs such as Medicaid.
The Omaha Public Schools board will use a consulting firm from the Chicago area to assist with its second search for a new superintendent.
OPS board members voted Monday night to hire Proact Search of Wilmette, Illinois. The school district is once again searching for a new superintendent following the resignation in early June of Nancy Sebring. She was to begin her new job as OPS superintendent July first, but resigned following reports that she used her Des Moines Public Schools email account to send sexually explicit messages.
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.
