The search for an interim leader of the Omaha Public Schools is ongoing, school board President Freddie Gray said Monday.
The board met in closed session for an hour and 40 minutes Monday evening to talk about three items, including the interim superintendent search process and status.
But the board returned to open session, then adjourned without taking any action on the matter.
Superintendent John Mackiel is retiring Aug. 31 after 40 years with the district, the last 15 as superintendent.
In April, the board had hired Nancy Sebring, then superintendent of the Des Moines Public Schools. But she resigned from the Omaha job last month after sexually explicit emails that she sent from her work account in Des Moines became public.
The board had asked Mike Dulaney, executive director of the Nebraska Council of School Administrators, to head up the search for an interim leader.
Monday, Dulaney said he'd handed the board all the applications he had received. "It is essentially in the board's hands at this point in time," he said.
Dulaney declined to say the number of applications he had gotten.
