Cleveland Metropolitan School District (CMSD) is responsible for the archiving of student permanent records of former and alumni CMSD students.  

    If you are a current student and need a transcript, contact your school counselor. If you have withdrawn at any time during the current school year, contact the last school attended for copies of records.

If the student is 18 years of age or older, school records will not be released to a parent, guardian or responsible person without the student’s written consent.
