Mark Evans, superintendent of Andover public schools, is a finalist for the top job at the Omaha school district, a Nebraska newspaper reported Friday.

The Omaha World Herald reports that Evans is one of three finalists for superintendent of Omaha public schools.

The Omaha school board is seeking a successor to former superintendent John Mackiel, who retired in August.

Along with Evans, the other finalists are Carey Wright, chief academic officer for the District of Columbia public schools, and Stephen Murley, superintendent of the Iowa City Community School District.

Evans, in his eighth year as Andover superintendent, spent 17 years in administrative positions in Wichita public schools.
