The Omaha school board has selected a company to conduct another nationwide search for a superintendent following the resignation of a former Iowa superintendent over emails to a lover on her district computer.
The board on Monday hired Proact Search of Wilmette, Ill.
It was one of two firms the school board interviewed, but didn't select, in last year's original search to replace Superintendent John Mackiel, who's retiring this summer.
The board hired Nancy Sebring, the superintendent of the Des Moines school district. She abruptly left her Iowa job in May. She lost the Omaha job after the emails were made public.
Omaha school board President Freddie Gray says the board wants "some fresh eyes" on the selection process. She says they have no timetable yet on the search.
