A teacher at Buffett Magnet Middle School is under investigation after concerns were raised about an inappropriate classroom lesson.
In a message to parents on Monday the principal said "We want you to know that we were recently made aware of concerns regarding a teacher who reportedly introduced an inappropriate classroom discussion/lesson, as well as made an inappropriate remark during class."
The message also said "we take reports like this very seriously. Our Human Resources department was immediately contacted regarding the incident and is conducting a full investigation."
Neither the principal nor the district released any details about the subject matter of the lesson. OPS released a statement saying The comments reported are in no way reflective of the values of Omaha Public Schools. As the most diverse school district in the state, we pride ourselves on being respectful of all students' ethnicity, backgrounds and culture.
