Gausman withdraws consideration for Omaha Superintendent position

OPS Board left with no superintendent finalists

OPS Board left with no superintendent finalists

The superintendent of the Reading School District has withdrawn from consideration for the chief position of Omaha schools.

Mumin and Gausman issued a joint statement Saturday saying they chose to withdraw because they believe neither had broad support from the board.

The school board in Omaha was expected to meet on March 20th to discuss and choose the next superintendent for Omaha Public Schools.

Jane Stavem, assistant superintendent for instruction for Lincoln Public Schools, also was a finalist and removed herself from consideration last week. They toured schools; hosted meet-and-greet sessions with parents, staff and community members; and answered questions on student discipline, their leadership styles and charter schools during hourlong public interviews with board members. There was no immediate comment from board members.

"We just thought it would be best for them to reopen their search to find the right candidate", Gausman said. "We are fortunate, in that we both maintain positive relationships with our current local boards". "To that end, we are pleased to continue the work in our own communities and school districts to serve our student populations".

In 2016, the National School Public Relations Association named Mumin a "superintendent to watch".

The Board of Education was notified late this evening that the two finalists for the superintendent of the Omaha Public Schools withdrew their candidacy.

In the statement, Dr. Paul Gausman of Sioux City Community Schools and Dr. Khalid Mumin of the Reading School District in Pennsylvania said they did not feel the board showed a supportive relationship.
