Omaha Public Schools Announces Bluestem Middle Principal

Brian Begley

Omaha Public Schools announced the leader of our district’s newest middle school, scheduled to open in August 2023.

Pending Board of Education approval, Mr. Brian Begley will serve as principal and begin his position in summer 2022. The 2022-23 school year will be in preparation to open the school. Mr. Begley currently serves as principal of Millard North High. He began his career as an English teacher at Millard North High in 1992, and served as assistant principal at Peter Kiewit Middle and principal at George Russell Middle. He has been with Millard North High since 2007.

Mr. Begley holds a Bachelor of Science in Secondary Education, a Master of Arts in Secondary Education and a Master of Science in Educational Administration and Supervision, all from the University of Nebraska Omaha.

”I am honored and humbled to be named the new principal at Bluestem Middle School,” Mr. Begley said. “I am eager to provide caring support for our Bluestem students by helping them achieve all of their educational goals.  Engaging with our community will be a top priority as we prepare to open our new school in August 2023.”

Facilitated by the Omaha Public Schools Human Resources team, the consideration and selection process included a review of qualifications and a panel-style interview with central office administrators, a member of the Board of Education, secondary staff members and families from the new school’s attendance area.

We look forward to welcoming Mr. Begley to our district and Bluestem Middle this summer.
