Our YAN Spotlight series is an extension of our “Meet the Staff” series of posts where we follow up with our Youth Academic Navigators since the last time they were featured on the blog.
The D2 Center partnered with the Omaha Public Schools in the summer of 2020 to offer three classes to supplement OPS virtual summer classes. For the past nine years, D2 Center teachers have offered two elective credit classes to D2 Center students in the summer. This summer was a bit different. Due to the pandemic and closing of schools, OPS summer school was limited mostly to seniors and a few juniors. The extra classes offered at the D2 Center allowed some OPS and D2 Center seniors the opportunity to earn enough credits to either graduate or move closer to graduation. The classes were also available to other interested D2 Center students. All three D2 Center classes were taught remotely utilizing Zoom meetings, cell phone, and email.
