Cleveland City Schools Parent Responsibility Zones Announced

Wednesday, July 24, 2019

Cleveland City Schools will implement Parent Responsibility Zones for Cleveland High School beginning on Aug. 5.

Parents will be responsible for providing transportation to and from Cleveland High School each day for students that live within the indicated zone.

The boundaries of the zone are Paul Huff Parkway on the north, I-75 on the west, North Ocoee Street on the east, and 25th Street on the south.

The Parent Responsibility Zones are being implemented due to Tennessee laws regarding transportation funding. The state does not provide funding for students that live within 1.5 miles of a school.

Cleveland City Schools will phase in the Parent Responsibility Zones for other schools in the coming years. Families affected by this change have been notified by the school system. Visit www.clevelandschools.org for more information.
