Dear Families,

In response to Governor Mike DeWine’s extension of the school closure, Cincinnati Public Schools’ buildings will remain closed through at least May 1, 2020.

However, teaching and learning will continue. We have been working for weeks to ensure that students can continue their studies remotely. We also are prepared to serve students who do not have access to technology or internet at home.

Our meal distribution program will continue, as well as the services we offer to students with special learning needs. A limited number of our School-Based Health Centers will remain open, and you can find a list of those locations on our website at cps-k12.org.

To keep students engaged in learning, we will launch our Remote Learning Plan for all students, grades preschool to 12. Included will be digital lessons, hard-copy Enrichment Learning Packets, resources for parents, tips for structuring the school day, and more. We also are exploring opportunities to broadcast academic lessons through cable partners to ensure that content gets to as many students as possible. We will be releasing more information about our Remote Learning Plan later this week.

As we navigate these challenging times, I remain hopeful. Our school family – including teachers, staff and community volunteers – has truly stepped up for our city’s young people. So far, we have given out more than 50,000 meals and countless hygiene kits. Our teachers are instructing from their homes and are reaching out to students without online access. It is clear that our passion for empowering the next generation of world leaders has only grown stronger.

I also am grateful to you, our parents and guardians. I know this hasn’t been easy. But I am hopeful today because I know that we can get through this together.

The challenge of educating more than 37,000 students without classrooms is momentous. But, I am confident that learning in Cincinnati Public Schools will continue. We are #CPSUnited, and we will come through this stronger than ever before.

Please continue to visit our website at cps-k12.org for important updates. We will have much more information to share in the weeks to come.

Sincerely,

Laura Mitchell, Superintendent

Geek Squad Summer Academy Coming to Aiken High School

January 15, 2020

The Partnership for Innovation in Education is presenting the Geek Squad Academy from Best Buy at Aiken High School this June. It is open to Cincinnati Public School students ages 10-18.

The Geek Squad Academy provides an opportunity for students to develop tech skills, build self-confidence, spark creativity, and discover how technology can benefit them in their educational pursuits and in future careers. Students at Geek Squad Academy become "Junior Agents" and get hands-on experience with some of the newest and coolest technology.

Local Best Buy employees help the Junior Agents explore areas like:

  • Coding
  • Film Production
  • Photography
  • 3D Design
  • Digital Music
  • And more

It is one thing to tell teens about a possible future in technology. Best Buy believes that when you show them that not only is it a possibility, but that they can start right now, that is when our Junior Agents get inspired and that is when the magic happens.

Dates: June 10-11, 2020
Location: Aiken High School, 5641 Belmont Ave., Cincinnati, OH 45224
Ages: 10-18

Note: There may be a cost associated with this event; confirmation will come from the non-profit partner for further communication.

Registration details coming soon.
