Trying to keep their promise of smaller class sizes, officials hope to make up for a late start hiring last spring by hosting a job fair Wednesday.
CLEVELAND - The Cleveland Metropolitan School District Board voted Wednesday night to restore 50 minutes to the school day at kindergarten through eighth grade schools.
The days were shortened earlier this year to help the district erase a $66 million budget deficit. However, voters approved a 15 mill tax levy on Tuesday to fund an academic transformation in Cleveland.
Restoring the full school day is the first step.
"I believe it shows the first step in honoring our commitment and it shows action on day 1," said CEO Eric Gordon.
The schools will get the 50 minutes back in January when the second semester begins.
Issue 107 passed by a margin of 57 percent to 43 percent. It's the first time Cleveland residents have passed a levy for the struggling school district in 16 years.
