(Cleveland) - Cleveland Metropolitan School District CEO Eric Gordon has announced the plan that will bring children in Northeast Ohio's largest school district back to in-person learning for the first time since last spring.
Before children return to class, practice for spring sports begins Monday, February 22.
On Monday, March 1, the district will welcome back a number of our students with significant learning disabilities needing additional in-person attention and care.In addition to these students, some career-technical education students and some twelfth grade students requiring extra support may also be welcomed back to in-person learning.
Next, beginning on Monday, March 8, the CMSD will begin to welcome back several student groups, including Level 1 and 2 English Language Learners, PreK students, students in grades K through two, off-track 9thgrade students, off-track seniors, additional career-technical education students, and additional students with learning disabilities.This transition period will happen over a period of two weeks and will include an orientation period and a phased-in return to in-person instruction.

Mailers will be sent to the family of each child, outlining the procedures, as well as information for parents who want their children to remain on virtual learning, rather than hybrid.
