With proven programs that get results, parents and the caring adults around each child are the key to success in school. 

Focused on student achievement

Sharing data-driven success 

Ted Stilwill, Learning Community CEO, leads the celebration at the opening of the new Learning Community Center of South Omaha.

The Learning Community is a Nebraska political subdivision dedicated to supporting and sharing locally proven programs and practices to improve student achievement. Our community has the expertise to collectively change education for young people facing significant obstacles to their education. There are no quick-fixes to the challenge of improving student achievement, but we have built a strong foundation to share what works.
