Family interest in athletics / activities is an important component in the school program. Omaha Public Schools believe that participation in athletics and activities provide a wealth of opportunities and experiences which assist students in personal adjustments.
The Omaha Public Schools are concerned with the educational development of boys and girls through athletics / activities and feel that properly controlled, well organized programs can meet student needs for self expression, social, mental, physical growth. The intent is to conduct programs that are educationally sound in purpose and will enhance each student’s personal growth.
A student who elects to participate in athletics / activities is voluntarily making a choice involving self discipline. The Omaha Public Schools is striving for excellence in all of our athletic and activity programs. The Omaha Public Schools are committed to certain responsibilities and obligations which include:
• To provide adequate equipment and facility
• To provide well trained coaches and sponsors
• To provide equitable and fair contests with skilled officials
The success of athletic/activity programs depends on positive parental support, care, and encouragement for participants, teams, coaches, and the school.
