Please join us Thursday, September 5 from 3 – 5 P.M. to celebrate the start of D2 Center tutoring! D2 Center students are invited to meet our tutors, enjoy some food, and enter a raffle for a chance to win a prize. We hope to see you there!
As a Reengagement Center, one of the primary goals of the D2 Center is to do outreach to students who have withdrawn from school but are eligible to reenroll. This effort complements our work of supporting students who are in the process of disengaging from school or are off track to graduate on time. Since the fall of 2016, the Omaha Public Schools (OPS) / D2 Center Services Agreement allows the D2 Center to work in partnership with the district to reengage students. The D2 Center is provided “dropout lists” and basic student information for this task.
After-school tutoring begins at the D2 Center on Thursday, September 5, 2019. Please join us for assistance in math, reading, and more. See below for details, and please call 402-502-8534 with any questions.
Huge congrats to these graduates for finishing up and earning their diplomas this summer! These D2 Center students overcame various — often multiple — barriers, then were able to complete high school and ultimately walk across that commencement stage. We are so proud of you, your hard work, and your persistence!
The D2 Center summer elective credit class Literacy and Life Skills teachers and students held an Open House last Friday, July 26, 2019, attended by parents and family members, community support staff, and D2 Center staff. Everyone enjoyed bagels and fruit, and the students made oral presentations. The students selected, researched, and presented on a variety of topics including heart disease, global warming, city government, depression, alcohol effects and abuse, nutrition, sexual orientation and bullying, and hepatitis to name a few. Teachers Ms. Clem Bell and Ms. Jodie Martinez were proud of the students’ hard work as well as their oral presentation skills. Way to go, class!
