Omaha Public Schools Community:
It has been my privilege during this 90-day transition to meet many wonderful people and to become better acquainted with the Omaha community. As I have visited schools, met with stakeholders and participated in community meetings, the robust support for the mission and vision of Omaha Public Schools is evident.
Through our input process, students, teachers, support staff, parents and community members and the Board of Education have been candid with their feedback, which has helped me better understand many aspects of the daily operations of Omaha Public Schools and the way that different constituencies experience our schools daily. During those conversations, I have also asked participants to imagine what they want OPS to become in the future. Their vision and expectations for their school district and their children are inspiring.
My hope is that this
will foster a common understanding of our school district’s current position and serve as our guide for future discussions on continuing the fine traditions and extraordinary outcomes of Omaha Public Schools. Working together, we will empower all of our students to become the best version of themselves. I appreciate our community’s participation during this process and look forward to leading the district as we work together to support our schools and contribute to the success of Omaha. #OPSProud
