Eric S. Gordon

CEO, Cleveland Metropolitan School District

In November 2016, the city of Cleveland voted overwhelmingly to renew the 15-mill levy that funded the first four years of The Cleveland Plan. The last five State of the Schools addresses have focused on the progress the Cleveland Metropolitan School District (CMSD)  has made in service to Cleveland's families, including increased graduation rates and the opening of a varied portfolio of school options for families. As The Cleveland Plan enters its second phase, what are the priorities and what challenges remain?


We invite you to join us for the annual tradition of hearing from CMSD CEO Eric S. Gordon, leader of the region's largest public school district - a district whose improvement many believe is key to the future success of our city and region.
