Omaha, Nebraska (KMTV) —The start of a new school year may be months away, but Omaha Public Schools are still approaching some important school board meetings.

The OPS Biweekly Board of Directors was scheduled to meet on Monday, June 20, but was moved on Thursday, June 23, due to the closure of all school buildings on June 16.

Currently, some board members are unable to attend Thursday’s meeting and one agenda item is being pushed to the next.

This is a vote to extend Cheryl Logan’s contract. The extension began on July 1st and continued until June 30th, 2025. This includes a 4.85% salary increase, which is consistent with the total increase in the 2022-23 package approved by the teacher.

At this week’s meeting, the Board will vote to approve the district’s recommendations for staffing coordination. This included hiring more than 60 new teachers, many of whom were first grade teachers, and some were retired.

There is also a vote to approve the purchase of textbooks for two new high schools in the district, Buena Vista and West View. The cost will be over $ 33,600.

OPS will hold a welcome event on Thursday afternoon for all new teachers and the new Forest Station Elementary School to continue recruiting activities.
