The Cleveland Heights-University Heights City School District is preparing for the 2020-2021 school year, and there is no doubt that we are entering a new era in education. While our core mission is to provide a rich education to all of our students, the continued safety of our staff and students is paramount. 

On this page, you will find answers to frequently asked questions, learning model descriptions, the latest reopening news, Board meeting presentation videos and more. I must emphasize that we are monitoring the situation daily, and plans may change based on the state of COVID-19 in our area as we get closer to the start of school.

This summer, I will continue to send regular communications through email, robocall and social media. Follow me on Twitter @CHUHSupt.  

Families and staff, please continue to take care of yourselves and enjoy the summer. And remember that we are Tiger Nation, and we are in this together.
