Recently, OPS sent an e-mail asking for feedback regarding the Student Assignment Plan. If you did not receive it, the text has been copied and pasted below.
To further support the Omaha Public Schools' (OPS) Strategic Plan, the OPS Board of Education is currently reviewing the district's Student Assignment Plan. The purpose of a Student Assignment Plan is to determine which schools a student may choose and attend. The Student Assignment Plan also sets the rules for transporting students to and from school.
As an OPS parent, it is very important that your opinions on this topic be considered.
To gather your viewpoints, OPS has created a survey available on the district website and the link provided below. The survey is available in both Spanish and English and only takes about 10-15 minutes to complete. Paper-and-pencil copies are also available in every OPS school. The paper-and-pencil surveys will be available in schools until and the online survey will be available until . Your opinions are critical and will help to inform the Board of Education as they explore potential changes to the Student Assignment Plan.
Thank you for your support and continued participation in OPS.

Regardless of your feelings, please take the time to complete the survey and let your voice be heard.

Please attend.
