Cleveland Central Promise Neighborhood school chosen as an investment school

Cleveland Metropolitan School District CEO Eric Gordon has announced 13 "investment schools" the district selected to turn around. The 13 schools, among the worst-performing in the district, will see a mix of more class time, new principals, new teachers, retrained teachers and special attention to the weakest areas of the school and the greatest needs of its students.

One Cleveland Central Promise Neighborhood partner school, Carl & Louis Stokes Central Academy, is in the first group of schools to be chosen.

"'Investment Schools' represent not only our greatest, clearest need, but also our greatest opportunity to make changes our students and their families can see and feel in their classrooms, their schools and their communities," the District said in its announcement.

The Cleveland Central Promise Neighborhood initiative is committed to collaboratively developing effective programs and services to ensure that children are healthy, ready for kindergarten, go to good schools and graduate from high school to go on to college or other educational opportunities and on to a career. The initiative also is committed to the goal of transforming the neighborhood into a community where every child goes to college. The Sisters of Charity Foundation of Cleveland, which is a ministry of the Sisters of Charity Health System, is the lead Promise Neighborhood partner.
