District Mission: Omaha Public Schools prepares all
students to excel in college, career, and life.
District Vision: Every
student. Every day. Prepared for success.
School Mission: The mission of Blackburn Alternative Program
is to assist students to achieve their highest potential through individual,
flexible, and structured educational experiences designed to enhance their
academic growth and foster lifelong learning.
Blackburn Alternative Program is in north central Omaha at
2606 Hamilton Street. Blackburn serves Omaha Public Schools (OPS) 9th-12th
grade students as recommended or referred by the 7 OPS traditional high
Blackburn follows the guaranteed and viable curriculum as
set forth by OPS Curriculum & Instruction Support for secondary education.
Both core and elective courses are offered to enable students to meet
graduation requirements. Blackburn follows a block schedule that allows
students to earn credits on a quarterly basis. Class sizes are generally
smaller than in the traditional setting, so students receive the support they
need to be successful. Staff members readily teach students skills they need to
have an educationally rewarding experience at Blackburn and into the future. Students
who accomplish their goals for attendance, behavior, and academic achievement
may be recommended for return to the traditional high school setting. Students
are, however, eligible to remain and graduate from Blackburn.
