While students had the day off, District teachers, paraprofessionals, administrators and educators of all types gathered to share ideas, learn from experts and make plans to accelerate the progress they’re already making.
2/14/2017 -- In a message sent to employees Monday, District Chief Executive Officer Eric Gordon said he believed CMSD's enrollment gains over the last two years are a "testament to the caring, concerned, responsive school district we are continuing to become." He reminded them that "every single one of our customer experiences matter, whether it is colleague-to-colleague or extended to the customers that walk through our doors."
2/2/2017 -- Once a year, the concourse at Cleveland State University’s Wolstein Center is turned into a shopping mall lined with booths representing CMSD’s growing list of high school options. Eighth-graders roamed the concourse with classmates Wednesday during the day. Students and parents visited for two hours during the evening.
1/23/2017 -- A majority of students who take advantage of open enrollment are eighth-graders faced with the critical decision of which CMSD high school to attend. Current eighth-graders are exploring their options with the help of the District's High School Choice Book and videos on the CMSD website. Students and families can browse school booths when CMSD holds its annual High School Choice Fair from 5-7 p.m. on Wednesday Feb. 1 at Cleveland State University’s Wolstein Center.
1/9/2016 -- The board promoted two current members to leadership positions and brought on a new member to fill a vacancy.
1/6/2017 -- It has become increasingly apparent that the factory-style high school of the 20th century is not meeting the needs of young people in the 21st century. While high school graduation rates have reached an all-time high, as many as 60 percent of entering college students are not ready to do college-level work. These young people will likely struggle to advance in a society where, by the end of the decade, more than 60 percent of all jobs will require some college-level education.
