Attendance Plays A Key Role In Every Child's Academic Success-Target 11 Attendance Initiative

Parents and guardians play a critical role in school attendance. The Cleveland Metropolitan School District, working with community partners, will continue the Target 11 Attendance Initiative. Target 11 enables school officials and community partners to more closely monitor each child’s attendance at school while also educating the families on the importance of good attendance records. 

Each day your child is absent from school negatively impacts his or her attendance percentage, which in turn negatively impacts overall academic progress. Target 11 is designed to educate parents on the tracking procedures used for attendance. The objective is for students to not miss more than 11 days of school, thus meeting a 93 percent attendance goal.

Children who exceed 11 absences this year will be referred to our community partners such as the Department of Children and Family Services and the Cuyahoga County Juvenile Court.

Emergency Information

Sometimes emergencies or unexpected situations occur. When this happens, the District must locate a child’s parent or another adult who can care for the child. Emergency information is very important if a child is injured or gets sick, or if the school must close early due to an emergency or weather conditions.

An Emergency Information Form is part of the Student Information Packet. Parents/guardians should complete the form accurately and return it to the child’s school. Changes in information should be shared with the school as soon as possible.

Responsible Sexual Behavior Initiative

The Cleveland Metropolitan School District has become one of the nation's trailblazers for comprehensive sexuality education, including pregnancy and disease prevention with the creation of its Responsible Sex Behavior Program.

Below are web resource links that will help you prepare and discuss this important issue with your school age children.
