Employee Policies and Procedures Manual

The Cleveland Metropolitan School District (“District”) is responsible for providing educational services to the children of Cleveland through its talented and diverse employee resources. The District relies upon employees to fulfill their roles in providing these services and to perform their jobs in a professional, fair, honest and thorough manner. The District expects that employees will strive for excellence in advancing the District’s mission by demonstrating integrity and upholding professional standards. 

All District employees are subject to the provisions of federal law, the Ohio Revised Code, the Ohio Administrative Code, Cleveland Board of Education policies (ClevelandMetroSchools.org/), collective bargaining agreements and the District Administrative Rules included in this Manual. This Manual addresses the most frequently asked questions regarding District policy. It should be noted that changes to policy are initiated by changes in the law and/or District operating procedure. Employees are required to make themselves familiar with the contents of this Manual.
