2 more preschools receive top rating





Mound and Louis Agassiz schools are the latest additions to the District's growing list of top-rated preschool sites.

Both received the maximum five stars awarded under Ohio’s Step Up to Quality rating system.

So far, 38 of CMSD’s 61 preschool sites have earned five stars through the voluntary system. The remaining sites will undergo evaluation in an attempt to join them.

Through the PRE4CLE partnership, CMSD is working with private providers to make high-quality preschool available throughout the District.

Expanding access to high-quality preschool is one of the goals of The Cleveland Plan, a customized blueprint for education reform in the city. A rating of three stars or higher is considered high quality.

CMSD still has high-quality preschool seats available. To enroll your 4-year-old child – or a 3-year-old who will turn 4 before Jan. 31 – call CMSD's Early Childhood Education Department at 216-838-0110.
