Board members approved an interim superintendent candidate profile and application during a special meeting Monday afternoon. The board is working with the Nebraska Council of School Administrators and American Association of School Administrators to find interim superintendent candidates.
The four-page application and one-page profile will now be used to find candidates for the interim position, which will be filled by September first.
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.
The OPS board unanimously approved Sebring’s contract Wednesday afternoon. She’ll receive a $275,000 base salary, plus $12,000 for transportation expenses and an annuity equal to 14 percent of her salary. The contract does not include bonuses.
OPS board president Freddie Gray says she’s confident Sebring will transition smoothly in to her new role as superintendent.
