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:

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