Community Involvement

When Cleveland students succeed, so do the neighborhoods, people and organizations that surround them. Through partnerships and collaboration with community stakeholders and city leaders, we’re building a strong community rooted in quality education.

Direct Outreach

Now finishing its fourth year, the School Quality Ambassador program was created to distribute Alliance resources, including the School Quality Guide, and to engage parents about school quality and options. Staff and ambassadors attend 60 community events each summer.
