Welcome to Area 66!


Technology OverviewArea66-Logo

From its inception, Westside Community Schools, District 66, has set lofty academic standards for itself and its students. Those standards have been the driving force behind the district’s tradition of innovation and excellence since the district opened in 1952. Once a suburban school district situated on the western edge of Omaha, Westside now lies in the heart of the city, drawing a diverse community of students from all corners of a three-county metropolitan area. Each day, over 6,000 students in grades K-12 come to Westside to take advantage of its innovative solutions for teaching and learning.

Our students and teachers develop phenomenal practices on a daily basis. The continuous development of new technologies that will become available to us in the future leaves no doubt that this powerful progression of intellectual and creative growth will not diminish. Technology has become, and will continue to be an essential component in the DNA of Westside Community Schools.

Area 66 is dedicated to helping to promote these goals through offering support and training to all teachers, K-12.


Area 66 is located in the Underwood Hills Early Learning Center at 9030 Western Avenue.
