C.1.a. Strategic Plan of Action Updates
Rationale:  In February of 2020, the Omaha Public Schools launched a new Strategic Plan of Action, powered by foresight. Our Strategic Plan of Action includes a process for bi-annual updates/reporting to the Board of Education and the community. This workshop will include updates to goals outlined in the Strategic Plan of Action. The following six goals will be reviewed: 

Strategic Priority 1: Academics  

  • Annually, each school will have 4% more kindergarten through third grade students that will read on grade level as measured on standardized district assessments. 
  • Each year, every high school will increase the percentage of ninth through twelfth grade students identified as on-track for graduation by 5%. 

Strategic Priority 2: Staff  

  • A pipeline of teachers will be developed so that 95% of teaching positions are filled in each school by August 1 of each year with highly qualified candidates. 

Strategic Priority 3: Financial Accountability 

  • By March of 2022, audit existing systems and technology contracts to increase fiscal responsibility, eliminate redundancy in technology purchasing and create a schedule for procurement of technology infrastructure, planned obsolescence and security needs through 2030. 

Strategic Priority 4: Ethic of Care 

  • Each year, all schools and programs will have a 3% reduction in the number of student disciplinary events.  
  • Student groups in each middle school will meet or exceed growth goals in math and reading by 3% annually.
