CLEVELAND -- The Cleveland School District asked for a waiver to be exempted from state oversight-- and today that waiver was granted.
The district's latest report card was an F but the Ohio Department of Education agreed that the so-called Cleveland Plan provides a lot of oversight and accountability.
The Cleveland Schools will not fall under an academic distress commission.
The Lorain City Schools will be placed under an academic distress commission that will oversee the district's achievement.
The Lorain Schools are in Academic Emergency and the Ohio Department of Education has decided to intervene.
