OMAHA, Neb. (AP) - The Omaha Public Schools board is set to vote for a new superintendent from three finalists.

Omaha television station KETV reports that the board is set to make a selection Monday night.

The three finalists are Stephen Murley, superintendent of Iowa City schools; Carey Wright, chief academic officer for District of Columbia Public Schools; and Mark Evans, superintendent at Andover Public Schools in Kansas.

The Omaha board is replacing John Mackiel, who retired in August after 15 years. In April, the board hired former Des Moines Superintendent Nancy Sebring, but she withdrew in June after sexually explicit emails sent to and from her work account became public.
