Welcome Parents and Families!
You are very important to us and to your child’s development. Once the students leave the classroom, it is you who continues to help encourage and support the child in the learning process. Children in the Cleveland Metropolitan School District can only achieve the success they deserve with the help of concerned and dedicated support.
The administrative offices of the Cleveland Metropolitan School District are the support systems to the schools. Our building, at 1111 Superior Ave E, houses departments that include School Development, Education & Budget, Academic Affairs, Operations, Program Development, Student & Family Support Services, District Communications and Human Resources.
Some administrative offices are housed at other locations including Jane Addams Business and Careers Center, Cleveland Skills, Careers Center and the East Professional Center.
Visit our Summer Learning Resources webpage and the After-School Programs/Summer Camps page to find education opportunities and resources to keep your student engaged all summer long.
Did you know that if you are interested and involved, your child gets a better education? Visit your child's school during Open House and Parent-Family Day. Attend sports events, plays, concerts and other activities.
Parent Teacher Conferences
Parents should check with their child's school for the conference schedule.
Parent-teacher conferences are scheduled in all schools.
This is a good time to find out:
- what your child is doing well in, and what they need help with,
- how your child gets along with others,
- information on school policies or rules,
- what you can do at home to help... and much more.
But you can schedule a conference with your child's teacher at any time during the school year. If you would like to talk to a teacher, send a note or call the school office.
Naviance Succeed is a fully integrated solution designed to help raise student accountability and performance across a number of key indicators leading to increased engagement, improvements in academic performance and overall workplace and college readiness.

Sometimes emergencies or unexpected situations occur. When this happens, the District must locate a child’s parent or another adult who can care for the child. Emergency information is very important if a child is injured or gets sick, or if the school must close early due to an emergency or weather conditions.
An Emergency Information Form is part of the Student Information Packet. Parents/guardians should complete the form accurately and return it to the child’s school. Changes in information should be shared with the school as soon as possible.
