Cleveland Metropolitan School District students come in all ages, shapes, sizes, backgrounds and ethnicities.
District students are expected to be successful in rigorous instructional programs and can participate in a variety of extracurricular activities ranging from student government activities to sports.
The District's promotion policy requires students, teachers and parents/ guardians to closely monitor progress and work together on plans to help if a student is at risk of being retained.
Students are required to accomplish various skills, pass all required state tests and maintain a minimum grade point average in English language arts, arts, math, science and social studies.
Retention is a “last resort.” Students may be retained once in any grade and not more than twice before entering high school. View the District Promotion Policy.
