    Portfolio Planning, Growth and Management
     
    The portfolio management model allows the district to increase the number of high-performing schools by carrying out four objectives:
    • Promote, expand, and replicate existing high-performing district and charter schools
    • Start new schools
    • Refocus and strengthen mid-performing schools
    • Repurpose and address low-performing schools
     
     

    Portfolio Team

    The Portfolio Team cultivates, authorizes, launches, and oversees high-quality autonomous schools (i.e., District-run, Innovative, and Charter) in the CMSD. Empowered by The Cleveland Plan, the Portfolio Management Team embraces school autonomy, high-performance standards, clear accountability, parent/guardian choice, and broad stakeholder engagement.

    The Portfolio Team improves student outcomes for all Cleveland students by recruiting and supporting a diverse portfolio of high performing schools that are accountable for results.
