The Omaha World Herald reports that one of three finalists for the Omaha Public Schools superintendent position withdrew her candidacy Saturday.

Jane Staven is the associate superintendent for Lincoln public schools and said that the job was not the right fit for her.  The board will move forward with candidates Paul Gausman, the superintendent of Sioux City Community Schools in Iowa, and Khalid Mumin, the superintendent of Reading School District in Pennsylvania.

The board plans to meet March 20 to discuss and choose the district’s next superintendent. Current Superintendent Mark Evans is retiring at the end of the school year.

For Siouxland Public Media, I’m Mary Hartnett.
