A review of Omaha Public Schools Board of Education meetings. 
April 11, 2019

Following each Board of Education Meeting, the Office of District Communications recaps the board meeting in the Board Digest.
Board of Education Workshop
Student Assignment Plan - Boundary Process Update
Last night, the Board of Education held a workshop to hear updates regarding the Boundary Change Process. The Omaha Public Schools recognizes and supports the need for planning for the future of our school district. The District needs to adjust boundaries to accommodate the opening of five new schools.

Throughout the past several months, a series of meetings and focus groups were held with representatives from the community, staff and families to assist in the development of a redistricting boundary plan. A compilation of the boundary options created during those meetings were presented at the workshop. They will also be presented to the community at several upcoming community-wide meetings.

Parents, staff and community are invited to participate in the upcoming open community meetings regarding  proposed changes to south Omaha elementary and middle school attendance boundaries and the high school attendance boundaries to accommodate adding the new schools. The dates, times and locations of the meetings are as follows:
