The Omaha Public Schools recognizes and supports the need for planning for the future of our school district. To accommodate current and future needs of OPS students, a bond issue went before the Omaha voters and passed overwhelmingly in May 2018. The bond program includes funds to build five new schools: two elementary, a middle school and two high schools. Locations of the new schools are as follows:
· New elementary at 10th and Pine Streets
· New elementary at Ft. Crook and Childs Road
· New middle school at 42nd and Y Streets
· New high school at 60th and L Streets
· New high school at 156th and Ida Streets
As a result, the district needs to create boundaries for the new schools.
The Student Assignment Plan Leadership Committee, in collaboration with its consultant Cooperative Strategies, led a three-phase boundary change process, which included boundary option creation, community input and Board of Education information updates.
Representatives of Cooperative Strategies and Student Assignment Plan leadership gave a presentation, which included the boundary recommendations to the Omaha Public Schools Board of Education at their Monday, August 19 meeting.
The Board of Education is tentatively set to vote on the recommendations on September 16.
