From the Cleveland Transformation Alliance:
How can Clevelanders learn more about their public schools? What does “school quality” mean? How can communities work to improve their schools?
These are some of the questions that drive the work of the Cleveland Transformation Alliance. We’re a nonprofit advocacy organization striving to make sure all Cleveland children can attend quality schools, in every neighborhood.
The Alliance partners with organizations like Bellaire-Puritas Development Corporation to highlight what’s happening in schools and to work to improve public education. BPDC, with its history of active involvement in school issues, is uniquely situated to strengthen our schools, and the Alliance is here to help.
ClevelandTA.org (the Alliance website) and our printed School Quality Guide can be valuable resources for families seeking the school that’s the best fit for their children, and for other members of the community who care about making schools and neighborhoods stronger.
ClevelandTA.org includes profiles and ratings of every Cleveland public school – district and charter – along with contacts, enrollment information, and more. The same information is in our School Quality Guide, available in libraries, community centers, and at events throughout the city.
ClevelandTA.org features reviews of schools by the people who know them best: families, students, educators, and other community members. Anyone who knows a school can provide a review, either at ClevelandTA.org or through a form available in our Guide.
Alliance staff and our volunteer School Quality Ambassadors are available to attend events to help families find the best fit for their children.
Under the Chairmanship of Mayor Frank G. Jackson, the Alliance board of directors brings together partners from the Cleveland Metropolitan School District, the charter school sector, parents and educators, local foundations, and other community and business leaders. Board meetings are open to the public.
