New OPS Superintendent Takes Over

Nebraska's largest school district now officially has a new leader.

Mark Evans became superintendent of the Omaha school district on Monday.

Evans was picked last year after a nationwide search to replace former Des Moines Superintendent Nancy Sebring, who resigned before her start date following an email scandal. John Mackiel held the post for 15 years before retiring last August.

Evans had been superintendent of Andover Public Schools in Kansas, but he also worked as an administrator in the Wichita school district.

Since Evans was hired, the size of the Omaha school board has been reduced from 12 members to nine, and several new board members have been elected.

Evans plans to meet with administration, community and employee groups over the next few weeks.
