Welcome to the 2019/2020 school year. We are very excited about this school year. Jane Addams will be offering several college level classes that will be taught at our campus and at Cuyahoga Community College. These classes will allow students to earn college credit while completing the requirements to graduate from high school. Students can earn college credit in English and by taking an entreprenurial skills class . Jane Addams is one of five schools in the Cleveland Metropolitan School District that make up the Academies of Cleveland. As an academy of Cleveland school your child can expect to experience:
Hands-on lessons where students work in teams to create products that demonstrate learning Partnerships with businesses to solve real-world problems and to expose students to a multitude of careers and opportunities.
Interaction with prospective employers who engage with students in the classroom and in field experiences at sites where the employers offer job shadowing and internships
Preparation for college and careers, with opportunities to earn college credits and industry certifications while still in high school. At Jane Addams we offer small classroom sizes. Several career tech classes in the area of hospitality and hospitality tourism. We are looking forward to a wonderful and successful school year with your student, and I look forward to meeting you during one of our events.

Students in the school’s culinary program are busy year round, but this is a peak season. They are filling orders for holiday cookies, a workload that typically adds up to 350 to 400 pounds.
This is the third year for the awards, a partnership between the George Gund and Cleveland foundations, the District and the Cleveland Teachers Union. The goal is to spread best practices by honoring teachers who set a standard of excellence and serve as an example for their peers.
Last week, at the 39th conference, the club honored the District’s top seniors and connected them with civic leaders to discuss issues that are important to the seniors and articulate their visions of the future.
A duo of seniors in the culinary arts program at Jane Addams Business Careers Center took first-place at the "Burger Battle" in Columbus in February.
CMSD graduates received a boost this year from new Say Yes to Education scholarships that pay up to the full value of tuition. The scholarships may be used at all public colleges and universities and Pell-eligible training programs in Ohio and more than 100 private colleges and universities across the country.
The Ohio Department of Education has requested that we share this Notice of Proposed Class Action Settlement with you in an effort to improve the overall quality of special education and related services given to students with disabilities across the State.
The Cleveland Board of Education has approved a plan for the future of District academic programs and facilities. The board voted 9-0 Tuesday to adopt the plan after the District spent months holding community meetings and collecting feedback.
