Division of Schools
The Division of Schools is committed to ensuring that every student in the Cleveland Metropolitan School District receives a high-quality education. We demonstrate this commitment through our relentless pursuit of creating a more fair, just and good system of education.
The Division of Schools’s purpose is to provide our learners, both each of our scholars and each of their educators, with academically/intellectually complex tasks that are worthy of their productive struggle. These tasks should also allow our learners authentic opportunities to demonstrate their work and their learning of academic content and transferable skills in a joyful and adventurous environment.
We believe this is achieved through our dedication to aligned, consistent and rigorous leadership coaching and development. In addition, it is the goal of the Division of Schools to provide strong supportive services that enhance the experiences of all members of the school community.
