Monday night's Omaha Public Schools board meeting focused on addressing communications breakdowns in light of the results of a December audit.

Communication has been a hot topic within the school district all year, from busing problems to the search for a new superintendent, to dealing with parents.

"What people want is more timely response when they're calling, when they are emailing — that was one from our parents specifically,” OPS spokeswoman Monique Farmer said. “We heard not only do they want to make sure they are engaged and involved in their students’ education, but they want to be able to help the district."

One of the strengths touted in the audit: diversity.
