OMAHA, Neb. (AP) — The Omaha Public Schools board is set to consider paying a $650,000 settlement to the family of a young student who was molested by a former elementary school teacher.

Our partners at the Omaha World-Herald report attorneys for the family and officials for the school district will present the settlement to the board Monday night. It would be paid by the district’s insurance carrier.

The settlement deals with just one of three claims filed in the case of Gregory Sedlacek, a former teacher at Fontenelle Elementary School who is serving decades in prison for molesting six students.
