Nebraska's largest school district is moving 28 administrators out of their central office, and into individual schools. The change was a key recommendation in OPS' recent Strategic Planning Needs Analysis.
"I think what you're going to see is a greater focus on our schools and how we support and supervise," Superintendent Mark Evans tells WOWT 6 News.
The district says the goal is to provide more efficient, direct support to principals, teachers, students, and families.
Some staff members will be re-assigned into existing job openings. Others will see their job descriptions change.
"Some of those will shift after this year too as we continue looking at the evolution of how we best support our schools," says Evans.
One of the goals is to reduce the number of central administrative staff.
A new Office of Equity and Diversity will be formed as part of the realignment.
The HR office will meet with transitioning staff during the month of February. They'll move into their new roles before the beginning of the next school year.
