IMPORTANT NEWS:

Dear 2016-2017 NAAC Members,

Thank you for your hard work and dedication in contribution to our Native American students.  As you may know, Omaha Public Schools is working with a consulting agency to conduct a superintendent search.  With this in mind, OPS has scheduled a day for members of Omaha's Native American community to collectively meet with the consultants leading the search.  The meeting will be held as follows:

OPS' Superintendent Search: Native American Input Session
Friday, January 13, 2017
TAC- Board Room (3215 Cuming St.)
1:00-2:00pm

This is an important time for you to come and voice your input regarding the search for and transition of our new superintendent.
