Standards Based Education


The Omaha Public Schools is moving forward on an initiative that holds great promise for improving accurate and fair grading of students across schools and among teachers. This approach uses a 4 point grading scale (0-4) to determine levels of student proficiency, and it utilizes common sense and best practice research to help increase student achievement and communicate progress more accurately.
