• space availability (capacity) at the requested school
• student's academic achievement & enrollment history
• student conduct (behavior record) - Level 3 and/or Level 4 offenses or repeated misconduct involving Level 1 and Level 2 offenses

In the State of Nebraska, parents may opt to educate their children at home, rather than through the local public school district.  The process is referred to as "Home School" or "Exempt (Home) School Process" and is administered through the Nebraska Department of Education (NDE). 

To access NDE's Exempt (Home) School Program, click HERE.

Please address questions to the contacts below:

Beth Bolte at beth.bolte@nebraska.gov or (402)471-2795

Micki Iverson at mick.iverson@nebraska.gov or (402)471-1894

**Please note, students will remain enrolled in OPS and are subject to the state mandatory attendance law until the assigned OPS school confirms that families have applied for the Exempt (Home) School Program. 

 Are you returning from Home Exempt Status?   Placement will most likely be made at your neighborhood school or the last OPS school you attended (if you had a previous enrollment).   Contact the Placement Office if you are looking to return to OPS.
