Office of the Superintendent

March 30, 2020

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

Choosing the Right School

Choosing the right school for your child is an important decision. Cincinnati Public Schools offers many educational choices. So how can parents decide what's best for their child?

Consider three major areas:

  1. Your child's individual needs and progress
  2. School or program offerings that will meet your child's needs and interests
  3. How well the school is performing

Selecting a School

Many factors should be considered when choosing a school, such as a school's academic performance, its location or the student activities offered. This information is available for each school in the district.

CPS' Building Futures Dashboard

The Ohio Department of Education rates individual schools annually, issuing an Ohio Report Card for each school and a report card for the district as a whole. The ratings are based on students’ performance on state tests, and on attendance and graduation rates.
