The Omaha Public School District is mapping out a road to the future and several public meetings are on tap this week to solicit ideas about paving that path.

The second of three sessions was held at Burke High School on Wednesday.

The district has drawn up some ideas on how to make improvements to some of its buildings, but before they move forward they want to hear from people.

The group at Burke gathered to collect some information from a consultant as well as pick up some paperwork outlining the district's ideas.

That set the stage for small group discussions and the opportunity to submit ideas to the district by filling out some forms.

Administrators say this is a crucial move to make sure the right improvements are made.

Assistant Superintendent Jerry Bartee said, "We have about 20, 25 facilities that, since they've been built back in the late 50s, early 60s, 50-plus-years-old, that have never been touched at all relative to any type of renovations."

The third of this week’s three meetings is scheduled at Benson High on Thursday evening from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m.
