Due Process

Thank you for visiting the Student and Community Services - Due Process page.   

On Monday, March 16, 2020, Omaha Public Schools began a closure to help limit the spread of COVID-19 across the community.  OPS Schools are closed for the remainder of the 2019-2020 school year, but the learning continues.  To read Superintendent Dr. Cheryl Logan's March 16th Letter to OPS Staff and Families click here.


The Board of Education believes school is an appropriate setting for all children and youth.  The Student Code of Conduct is designed to support this concept by developing, through reasonable and consistent practices, appropriate student behavior patterns.  Those behaviors and disciplinary actions set forth in the Code are designed to serve as learning experiences for students.  Compliance with the Student Code of Conduct is expected of all students.  This Student Code of Conduct applies to all students attending the Omaha public Schools.  School administrators will consider student age and grade level amongst other factors when assigning disciplinary actions.

Please review your child(ren)’s school handbook(s) to be familiar with stated behavioral expectations and the possible consequences of inappropriate behaviors.  High behavioral expectations also apply when students ride the bus, are on school grounds before and after school, and participate in extra-curricular activities.
