Cleveland Initiative for Education Program.
Cleveland Public Schools, OH.
The Cleveland Initiative for Education (CIE) is a plan designed by the Greater Cleveland (Ohio) Roundtable, the city's key assembly of civic and corporate leaders, and the Cleveland Public Schools. Its goal is to improve the quality of education, increase the number of high school graduates, and improve graduates' post-secondary opportunities through interlocking, system-wide programs. These papers, consisting of a fact sheet, questions and answers, a prologue, and executive summary, describe the background of the CIE, its programs, and its support services network. The Scholarship-in-Escrow and School-to-Work Transition programs are described in detail. The Scholarship-in-Escrow Program is intended to encourage Cleveland Public School students to consider post-secondary education. The program combines financial incentive, based on grades in prescribed academic subjects, with a comprehensive array of support services, both internal and external to the school district. The School-to-Work Transition Program is a partnership between the Cleveland Public Schools and the business community, designed to ease students' transition from school to the world of work, to focus the various employment programs that currently exist for students, and to meet the needs of businesses.
