OMAHA, Neb. (AP) — The Omaha school board has accepted the resignation of the incoming superintendent. The board voted 9-1 at a special meeting convened Saturday afternoon to accept Nancy Sebring’s letter of resignation. The vote came amid media reports that the discovery of sexual emails Sebring exchanged with her lover hastened her departure from a similar job in Iowa. Sebring was to assume the superintendent’s position on July 1. She abruptly resigned as superintendent of the Des Moines school system last month, saying she needed to attend to family matters ahead of her move. Sebring now acknowledges she stepped down earlier than expected after emails she exchanged with her lover using her district account were discovered.
