Apply to become a D2 center student
Congratulations on making the decision to empower your future!
Once we’ve received your information, we can start the process of creating an Action Plan to fit your needs.
Filling out an application for the D2 Center is the first step to connecting with an pathway to a high school diploma. Fill it out and submit online, stop by the D2 Center to fill it out, or call us at 402-502-8534 to apply over the phone!
We’ll also need two consent forms signed: 1) a D2 Center consent (download: (English [PDF] or Spanish [PDF]), and 2) a school district consent (download the OPS consent here (English [PDF] or Spanish [PDF]). If you’re 18 or older, you can sign and date these consent forms yourself. If you’re under 18, a parent/guardian will need to sign and date. If you’re attending a school district other than OPS, we’ll assist you with getting their consent form.
Jodie will have an in-depth interview with you, so she can learn more about your life both in and out of school, including your academic history and other issues you may be facing that have affected your education.
Jodie will help you complete the intake process OPS release, parental consent and D2 consent. If you go to school outside of OPS she’ll help you get the required consent forms; and you’ll then be assigned a Youth Academic Navigator (YAN).
You’ll meet with Jodie, your parent or guardian*, and your Youth Academic navigator (YAN) to assess and strategize to make sure you’re on track to graduate and connect you to resources in the community to help with other barriers you may face. You will also have access to D2 services, such as tutoring, elective credits and Career Navigators.
*Required if under 18
Attending school regularly and earning credits will keep you on track to earning your high school diploma. Your YAN will check in with you on a weekly basis to see how things are going and help you overcome barriers and connect to needed community resources!
