Equity and Diversity

  • Omaha Public Schools' first shared value, equity, is central to our work to deliver on our promise to our community. Within Omaha Public Schools, equity means making sure every student has the support they need to be successful. We recognize, identify and celebrate the strengths of each student. Significant portions of this Strategic Plan of Action focus on delivering equity through our schools and aligning resources with district priorities.

    We value equity in all areas of our district. We routinely monitor student data to ensure similar experiences for all students. Acknowledging that similar to the individuality of each of our students, each school is unique, we must support each school with what it needs to be successful.

    Our Board policies (1200, 4003, 5415) reaffirm our pledge to provide equal opportunity. We prohibit discrimination, bias-motivated violence, sex-based violence, and retaliation.
