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.
