The primary focus of the Schools Division is commitment to ensuring every student in the Cleveland Metropolitan School District receives a high-quality education. This commitment is displayed by our relentless pursuit of creating a more fair, just and good system of education.
The Schools Division’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 and allows them 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 Schools Division to provide strong supportive services that enhance the experiences of all members of the school community.
