Board Approves High School Student Assignment Plan Update

Following a review of the proposed High School Student Assignment Plan by district staff at the March 16 Board Meeting, the Board of Education approved the recommended updates.

Over the past 16 months, the Student Assignment Plan Committee has been working towards a simple, efficient and equitable plan for all Omaha Public Schools students. The Student Assignment Plan will determine their transportation eligibility and priority in the high school choice process. The committee developed several options and gathered feedback from internal and external groups including students, parents and staff. The feedback from those groups helped to determine the proposal.

Choosing a high school that meets a student's individual needs is an important opportunity in Omaha Public Schools. We know that students and families make their high school choice based on a variety of reasons including, but not limited to, programming and transportation. The proposed plan takes this into account. No matter where a student lives, they will have the option to apply to any high school in Omaha Public Schools. 

The plan will go into effect in Aug. 2022 as the new high schools open. The Student Assignment Plan Committee has already begun and will continue to communicate with families who may be impacted by changes to the High School Student Assignment Plan.
