Ombudsman Program Expands in Four States
This fall, new or expanded Ombudsman programs will open in school districts in Illinois, Georgia, Nebraska and Colorado.
Quincy, Ill., Public School District #172 will become the 76th Illinois school district to partner with Ombudsman when a new center serving 75 students in grades six through 12 opens later this year.
In Georgia, the Bartow County School board voted to replace the district’s existing alternative education program with Ombudsman. The district estimates Ombudsman will serve 60 middle and high school students at a savings to the district of nearly $600,000.
Ombudsman will open in Grand Island, Neb., this fall to serve 60 students in grades six through 12. This will be the second Ombudsman center in Nebraska, where Ombudsman also serves 60 students at a center in Millard. The existing Ombudsman program in Aurora, Colo., will expand by 60 seats to serve a total of 240 high school students when the new school year begins.
We look forward to working with all of our district partners to help students achieve in the 2010-11 school year.
