The mission of the Cleveland Transformation Alliance is to improve city schools and to assist families in choosing schools that best fit their children’s needs. In an effort to simplify the information provided to families about school quality, a panel of school district, union, business, foundation and charter school leaders created their own system for rating school quality.
Information provided by the Transformation Alliance includes a separate information page for each school along with ratings and data from the state of Ohio, school hours, contact information and demographic details for each school. There are also detailed descriptions of the academic programs and services provided by the schools. The Transformation Alliance Families provides an online list of nearby schools so families can easily locate schools, both district and charter, along with their quality ratings.
