CARSON CITY, Nev. (AP) - The Nevada Board of Education is considering whether to revoke the teaching license of a former administrator who pleaded guilty to embezzling large sums of money from the Clark County School District.

The board meets Thursday to consider the case of 68-year-old Priscilla Rocha, who directed the district’s adult English language learner program until spring 2014 and previously served on the state board.

She was convicted in March of theft and unlawful use of public money and is serving 4-10 years at the Florence McClure women’s prison in Las Vegas. She also must pay more than $280,000 in restitution.

The board is also considering revoking the teaching license of 44-year-old Terrie Sena, who pleaded guilty to sexual assault and is serving a sentence of 10 years to life in prison.
