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 needed 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 final boundary recommendation to the Omaha Public Schools Board of Education.
The Board of Education approved the recommendations on Sept. 16.
