Omaha Public Schools is thankful to our community for approving the $421 million phase 1 bond in 2014, and the $409.9 million phase 2 bond in 2018. The improvements to current schools and the building of five new schools will support a positive learning environment for students across our district.
The phase 1 bond projects are now complete. Phase 1 was completed on time, and on budget, even allowing the district to complete additional identified work. The Phase 2 bond is currently on track and on schedule, as well. Five new schools will open as part of the Phase 2 bond. There will be two elementary schools (Pine and Forest Station), one middle school (Bluestem) and two high schools (Buena Vista and Westview).
