by | Oct 21, 2020 | General, News, Updates

The D2 Center Annual Report (PDF) for the 2019-20 fiscal year is now available. Our Annual Report offers information about the students we serve, program outcomes, and our organization overall. The current pandemic created unique challenges in the final quarter of 2019-20. The closing of schools and social distancing hindered student progress and D2 Center growth and progress as well. Despite these challenges, the D2 Center:

  • Served 339 students in the YAN program; sixty-three graduated from high school.
  • Did outreach to 210 OPS students who had dropped out of high school. Fourteen of these students have already graduated from high school and many more are still enrolled.
  • Assisted an additional fifty-two OPS students who attended alternative programs. Career Navigators provided postsecondary career planning, job searches, training, and educational opportunities.
  • Offered elective credit opportunities from certified teachers; nineteen students earned an elective credit and thirty students were enrolled remotely during the summer of 2020 in a special partnership with OPS.
  • Provided tutoring to thirty-nine students on Tuesday and Thursday afternoons a total of 152 times.

As the new school year unfolds, the challenges are greater than ever. The D2 Center has responded and
will continue to respond in the weeks and months ahead. We appreciate the ongoing support of the City of Omaha, United Way of the Midlands, The Sherwood Foundation, and the Weitz Family Foundation that is so critical to our mission.
