The Cleveland Plan
Our goal is to ensure that every child in Cleveland attends a high-quality school and that every neighborhood has a multitude of great schools from which families can choose.
To do this, Cleveland must transition from a traditional, single-source school district to a new system of district and charter schools that are held to the highest standards and work in partnership to create dramatic student achievement gains for every child. The plan is built upon growing the number of excellent schools in Cleveland, regardless of provider, and giving these schools autonomy over staff and budgets in exchange for high accountability for performance.
We will create an environment that empowers and values principals and teachers as professionals and makes certain that our students are held to the highest expectations.

Equity and Inclusion Declaration
We believe that equity and inclusion at CMSD is an essential call to action, a catalyst to ensure value and appreciation among all our employees, so we may be fair and welcoming now and in the future.
It is necessary to foster practices that address the lack of awareness and understanding of differences and to gain buy-in from our entire workforce and the community we serve.
It requires truthfulness, definition of terms and a customized message for our employees to create and promote an inclusive mindset.
It requires the continuous development and capacity building of our employees to better engage and meet the needs of our students and their families.
It will be realized when each person can fully and comfortably be themselves at work regardless of their race, ethnicity, national origin, religion, sex, ability, age, citizenship status, sexual orientation, gender-identity or expression, socio-economic status, title or other dimensions of identity.
