    To CMSD Families, Friends and Supporters:

    Dr. Morgan engaging with a studentIt is my pleasure to welcome you to the 2023-24 School Year. I am deeply honored to serve as your new CEO and look forward to working with students and families within our CMSD community. It is exciting to come back to Cleveland and provide academic leadership in a community and district that I hold close to my heart.

    Though we have work ahead of us to ensure our scholars have the excellent and equitable education they need and deserve, we are fortunate to have a solid foundation of progress to build on. The momentum for the future is strong and we will work together to set measurable and meaningful goals for implementing The Cleveland Plan. As CEO of CMSD, I am committed to a culture that delivers a high-quality education and values equity, access, transparency, kindness, and professionalism.

    The district Academic Calendar, which you will soon receive in your mail, provides information about important events taking place and our overall progress toward The Cleveland Plan goals. This year’s theme for our calendar is Growing Momentum. The 2023-24 School Year promises to be an exciting year and a year of changes. Have a joyous and enriching school year!
