Welcome to the 2015-16 school year in the Cleveland School District. I hope that you have had a fun and enriching summer and that you are ready to return to school. Teachers begin on August 4th with New Teacher Orientation. All teachers report to their respective school on August 5th.
Students 1st day is Monday, August 10th. Parents, please be sure you begin your child on a regular bedtime schedule so they will adjust properly after the extended break. CSD is excited to begin Phase I of the 1 to 1 initiative with the Ipad rollout to K-3 teachers the first semester. Student roll out will take place the second semester. CSD has also been awarded a Robotics & Engineering grant for MS designed to attract students to pursue careers in engineering.
21st Century Community Grants will be implemented at Nailor, Parks, Cypress Parks and Pearman that will provide after-school tutoring for students.
A partnership with the Glenn Foundation & MS Food Network will provide after-school snacks to all CSD students attending after-school programs.
We look forward to a wonderful year working with staff, students, parents and the community to educate and empower all students to excel.
