Recruiters will appeal to teachers who want to make a difference and be part of the innovation and sweeping reforms in The Cleveland Plan, a state-approved blueprint for change. They also will promote Cleveland as a city on the rise.
The campaign will place special emphasis on hiring black and Latino teachers. CMSD’s teaching corps is two-thirds white, while the enrollment is two-thirds black. Latinos account for 14 percent of the student body but make up 4 percent of teachers.
Recruiters are also seeking to fill high-need areas like special education, math, science and bilingual education.
