• CMSD Privacy Policy

    Thank you for visiting the Cleveland Metropolitan School District (CMSD) Web site and reviewing our privacy policy. CMSD is committed to ensuring the privacy of all our web site visitors. CMSD does not collect personal information about individuals without their knowledge.

    Use of Personal Information

    CMSD does not collect personal information unless given voluntarily by sending us an e-mail, participating in a survey, or completing an on-line form or application. Personal information submitted will not be transferred to any non-affiliated third parties unless otherwise stated at the time of collection. When a user submits personally identifiable information it is used only for the purpose stated at the time of collection. For example, our Online Job Application is stored to provide you and our Human Resources Department access to the account. Any information collection on this Web site is only used for District purposes.


    Parents with minor children under the age of eighteen years of age must give parental consent on a media release form. The media release form allows parent(s) to consent to the photographing, videotaping, and publishing of a child’s writings, quotes, photographs, video, image or likeness on the Web or other publications. Parents have the right to revoke in writing a previously granted consent.


    When submitting an electronic mail message (email), the message usually contains your return email address. If you include personal information in your email because you want us to address specific issues or concerns we may use that information to respond to that request. Since e-mail is not always secure against interception, you should only send information necessary to process the needed request. Information sent via e-mail will be forwarded to the department or individual(s) who can address your request or concern.

    Links to Other Sites

    CMSD provides links to other web sites. CMSD is not responsible for the privacy policies of other web sites, and CMSD's privacy policy does not apply when you visit these other sites. After leaving our Web site we recommend that you read the privacy statements of other web sites you visit if available.


    A “cookie” is a piece of data stored on the user’s hard drive containing information about the user. It enables CMSD to store and track what you are looking at when you visit our site. You have the ability to set your browser to not receive cookies if this is a concern. Your browser can be set to prompt you before browser to prompt you before it accepts a “cookie.” Most Internet browsers have settings that allow the identification or rejection of “cookies.”


    CMSD takes reasonable precautions to protect your personal information. Information submitted to this Web site is stored on a secure server in a secure environment. Employees needing the provided information to perform a specific task are granted access to personal information.
