The School District of Omaha is a unique educational entity within the State of Nebraska. Covering 146 square miles, it is among the larger metropolitan urban districts within the multi-state region and the nation, with enrollment greater than St. Paul, Des Moines, Kansas City and St. Louis. Within the state, it serves 15.6 percent of Nebraska's public school students, and nearly 46.73 percent of all minority students. Also, approximately 25 percent of the non-public elementary and secondary school students of the state reside within the district. The proportion of district residents having students enrolled in the public schools is lower than in many nearby suburban districts that have higher concentrations of younger families.

The School District of Omaha has much of which to be proud. Student achievement remains high, with test scores in nearly every category established at well above national norms. Absenteeism remains at a low level and students and teachers reflect eagerness, optimism and strong work ethic that characterize the Omaha Public Schools and the Omaha community.

The Omaha Public Schools hubsite is centered in the Banneker 2000: CEMS (Community of Excellence in Mathematics and Science) office. CEMS efforts support professional development of mathematics and science teachers with the intent to increase student achievement. This work is funded through a National Science Foundation Urban Systemic Program grant. Hubsite work is facilitated by Dr. Susan Koba and Mr. Jeff Eske...........
