• BACKGROUND: As part of its commitment to transparency and public confidence in the use of bond proceeds, the Board of Education approved the creation of a five-person Bond Oversight Committee (BOC) on May 11, 2015. This approval was contingent upon voter approval of the bond for the first of three phases of the District’s 15-year Facilities Master Plan for significant investments in buildings and facilities that are safe, secure, and conducive to learning in the 21st century.

    Phase I: On May 12, 2015, voters approved a $79.9 million bond for Phase I. Phase I projects were completed on time and on budget in the spring of 2020. 

    Phase II: On May 9, 2023, voters approved a $121,000,000 million bond for Phase II.

    Bond Oversight Committee Meetings are held monthly. Unless otherwise noted for a specific date, meetings are held at the District Administrative Office - ABC Building - 909 S. 76th Street, Omaha, NE 68114 at 6:00 p.m. Meetings are open to the public. Agendas will be posted at least 24 hours prior to the meeting date.
