Omaha Public Schools eLearning (OPS) is a district-run school programme in the US state of Nebraska, founded in 2006. OPS was initially designed to meet the needs of credit recovery students in grades 9-12, but evolved into a blended learning programme for all students. Credit recovery students access online content while at a physical school with in-person teachers.

In 2010-2011 there were nearly 15,000 blended face-to-face students; 600 full-time online students; and 2,500 supplemental students.

OPS uses OER content from NROC (Monterey Institute for Technology and Education).

Note: most of this content is drawn from a single report, "Keeping Pace With K-12 Online Learning," and at a glance, content has proven difficult to confirm via other sources (Sept 2011).
