and with term limits? I say YES. Jensen has been running OPS board into the ground.

p.s. time for Jensen and Huston to go from the school board in 2012.

Bill would trim OPS board - Omaha.com

An Omaha state senator will introduce legislation proposing to shake up the Omaha school board as new concerns emerge about whether the 12-member board is effectively overseeing the Omaha Public Schools.

State Sen. Scott Lautenbaugh, who represents northwest Omaha, said Tuesday that he will propose cutting the board to five members, each to be paid $20,000.

Under his proposal, board members would still be elected by district but would be limited to two four-year terms.

Currently, board members are unpaid and have no limits on how long they can serve. Five current members are serving at least their fourth terms, and the longest-serving member was first elected in 1978.

If approved, the proposal would take effect before the 2012 fall election. It would set up a situation in which every board member would have to run — potentially against other sitting members — if they want to keep a seat on the smaller board.

Lautenbaugh's proposal comes as a dispute has flared between new Omaha school board member Justin Wayne and the rest of the board.
