Alex P. Gates is a father of four OPS students, public school volunteer, PTA dad, technology entrepreneur, & candidate for the Omaha Public Schools Board of Education.
Alex and Jamie have children at Central High, Lewis & Clark Middle, Wilson Focus, and Edison Elementary. He's been an active OPS parent for 9 years leading PTAs and PTOs, with 12 more years to go.
Professionally, Alex creates innovative software for businesses. With both remote and in-person learning, and to prepare our students for the future, our district relies more and more on tech. To be successful, we need leadership with a strong understanding of technology.
This isn't about politics. Alex isn't looking for a stepping stone to higher office. He is 100% focused on our school district, and will make decisions based on what we need — not for political gain.
