OPS Superintendent Out Before She’s In

By   /   June 2, 2012  /   News  /   7 Comments

OMAHA — It didn’t take long.

Only hours after taxpayers learned that Nancy Sebring, the new superintendent of the Omaha Public Schools, was caught in an email sex scandal the school board here—which claimed to be as surprised as anyone—accepted Sebring’s resignation.

The scandal stemmed from Sebring’s previous job as superintendent of schools in Des Moines where she is accused of engaging in sexually explicit conversations with her lover using her taxpayer funded district email account.

Sebring, who is married, was scheduled to take over the top job in Omaha July 1.

Questions about her time in Des Moines surfaced after she abruptly resigned there on May 10 after accepting the Omaha post but well before her July 1 start date.

The events of the past 24 hours are likely to raise serious questions about the manner in which the Omaha school board conducted its search for a new superintendent.

    I suspect OPS was aware and wouldnt have said a word if the issue wasnt made public.

    Omaha Public Schools sure spent alot of money on trying to find their new superintendent, and probably knew ahead of time there were ‘issues.’

    However, OPS’ mission isn’t to create well educated students for the 21st Workforce, it is to crank our generic workers, who can’t think, for jobs at Burger King, Wal-Mart and telemarketing jobs there in Omaha.

    Good job OPS, good job.

    Given the recent follies in Bellevue and Sarpy County, she might easily be well able to work herself into a position there. (No pun intended.)

  • SoWhat???

    Past OPS Board President and current member SKJ had the same sort of “issues” back when she was just SK. I’m sure she’s not the only OPS Board member having such “experiences”. I guess they’d better hire the guy from Madison WI…despite the fact he didn’t discipline/fire any of his teachers who were “on sick leave” while protesting at the state capitol.

    Mike: I agree with you and let’s hope the idiots don’t hire the social justice believer…wish people who had children in school would do more research about what is really going on in the schools….all the tax money and it’s about sex and social justice. Bring on the good old NUNS they will turn things around and goodness make the ‘children’ wear uniforms they dress like skanks

    The story not being told here is who tipped off OWH and why

    SO WHAT: I bet they liked that guy that let those teachers protest on the taxpayer dime eh?
