Cleveland Metropolitan School District’s Building Program is a joint effort by the District and the Ohio School Facilities Commission (OSFC) to transform every Cleveland school into a 21st century learning environment. Building Program describes what is planned for each of the District’s schools (renovation, replacement or consolidation) and outlines when the work will be performed.
The passage of Issue 14 in May 2001 to fund the rebuilding of schools was followed by more than 200 community meetings to gauge the needs and expectations of the community.
In June of 2002, the Board of Education approved the Building Program outlining the replacement, renovation or consolidation of each District school. The Ohio School Facilities Commission (OSFC) gave its approval later that summer. The OSFC is funding more than two-thirds of the multi-segment project, while the District is funding the remainder.Issue 14 allowed the District to build and renovate more than 40 schools.In November 2014, voters overwhelmingly approved Issue 4, a $200 million bond issue that will allow the District to build 20 to 22 more schools and remodel 20 to 23. The bond issue did not raise taxes.Download our latest update:October 11, 2017IFF Report (pdf)
