What Success Could Look Like

3X

  • Our goal is that at the end of six years, we will have tripled the number of Cleveland students enrolled in high-performing district and charter schools, and eliminated failing schools.
slide12

HB 525 Highlights

  • Flexibilities
  • Enables the CEO to take corrective action to improve the district's lowest-performing schools without being bound by existing collective bargaining agreements.
  • Provides the CEO with sole authority to determine the school calendar and school day.
  • Allows the district to apply for exemptions from specific statutory provisions or rules under the innovative education pilot program.
  • Permits the district to direct any monies received from the sale of property into the district’s general fund (with a few exceptions).
slide13

HB 525 Highlights

  • Work Rules
  • Codifies a new performance-based evaluation and compensation system for principals and teachers.
  • Eliminates seniority as the sole or primary factor in personnel decisions, including layoffs and recalls.
  • Allows the district to terminate teachers who are rated "ineffective" for two successive years.
  • Establishes building-level hiring committees comprised of the principal, union representation and others, thereby eliminating seniority-based transfers.
  • Provides the district significant flexibility in determining teacher and principal contract terms and duration.
slide14

HB 525 Highlights

  • Charter Quality and Collaboration
  • Establishes a Transformation Alliance to recommend to ODE what charter school sponsors can open schools in Cleveland, to ensure fidelity to the plan, to provide input in the development of new district schools and partnering community schools, and to report annually on the performance of all public schools in Cleveland.
  • Authorizes the school district to share a portion of levy proceeds with high-performing charter schools who partner with the district.
  • Authorizes the school district to include the academic performance and enrollment data of students enrolled in partnering charter schools on the district's report card.
slide15

Community Support

  • The Cleveland Plan is widely supported by the community—educators, business, philanthropy, civic leaders, elected officials, community organizations, religious organizations, parents and students.
  • Cleveland voters approved an unprecedented 15 mill, 4-year levy in November with 57 percent of the vote.
  • The levy will generate between $64 and $70 million per year. One mill is set aside for partnering charter schools.
