CPS Awarded ‘AA’ from Fitch Ratings

We ask all our students to strive for A’s in the classroom, but outside the class, CPS goes for the double-A’s! 

Fitch Ratings, a global provider of credit ratings, commentary and research, awarded Cincinnati Public Schools a ‘AA’ rating. 

According to Fitch Rating’s press release, “The 'AA' rating reflects the district's moderate long-term liability burden and superior strong gap-closing capacity, and solid flexibility of main expenditures. The rating also reflects both the district's constrained revenue framework and its proven history of passage and renewal of voter-approved levies, as well as its slow expected revenue growth.”

CPS is proud to earn the ‘AA’ credit rating from Fitch Ratings. To learn more about the credit rating, read Fitch Ratings press release at
