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.
