Cleveland City Schools Enrollment Underway

Monday, July 13, 2020

Cleveland City Schools is enrolling new and returning students for the 2020-2021 school year. The deadline to complete online enrollment will be Thursday, July 23.

Instructions and links for families may be found at www.clevelandschools.org/enrollment.

Cleveland City Schools plans to open school in a traditional, in-person format starting on Aug. 10 with Reconnection Week. Students will attend a full day of school on one of the first four days (Aug. 10-13) according to their family’s last name (Monday: A-D; Tuesday: E-L; Wednesday: M-Q;
Thursday: R-Z). All students enrolled in traditional, in-person school will attend an abbreviated day of
school on Friday, Aug. 14.

On Monday, Aug. 17, all enrolled students will attend school and follow the updated 2020-2021 academic calendar. If a school or the district closes due to COVID-19, Cleveland City Schools will continue with academic work and instructional support with traditional, at-home learning.

For students who may have a need for an alternative to the preferred option of a traditional setting, Cleveland City Schools is offering enrollment into the Virtual School of Cleveland. Students who enroll in this program must be prepared to remain enrolled in the program for the duration of the school year.

A mandatory virtual parent meeting will be held on Thursday, July 23. The Virtual School of Cleveland team will email enrolled families a link to the virtual parent meeting prior to July 23.

To officially choose your preference for Traditional In-Person or Virtual school, parents can follow the directions at the link, www.clevelandschools.org/enrollment, by completing either the New Student/Kindergarten or Returning Students online form. Families who need additional assistance can email uchelp@clevelandschools.org.
