Kudos to Cincinnati Public Schools for being the only southwest Ohio school district and one of only five districts nationally to receive a $400,000 grant to help boost students for success after graduation, and help CPS create a college and career-going culture, implement programs that will determine how to address the needs of students, and be able to assess and grade where students receive credit based on determination for learning. The grant will also support the District’s My Tomorrow initiative. Each grant winner receives funds to implement the programs by the start of the 2016-17 school year.
Kudos to CPS’ Administration for being stellar in working toward CPS’ future vision.

Kudos to Public Affairs’ Communications Coordinator Christine Wolff.
Years ago, Ms. Wolff stepped up to coordinate with art teachers from around the district to create the displays of student art that brighten the Education Center’s main hallway. This student artwork reminds us of just how talented and creative our students are. Nobody asked Ms. Wolff to do this, and it is not a part of her job description. Her initiative shows how student-centric she is and how much she cares about the CPS mission
Thank you, Ms. Wolff, for caring enough to take the time to create a visual history of our students.
