The Cincinnati Public Schools Board has decided on a plan for returning to school in the fall. The board considered five models and heard feedback from parents, teachers and the community, including 6,200 survey responses.
During a virtual board meeting with more than 900 attendees, the Cincinnati Public Schools Board on Monday listened to public comment for more than two hours before unveiling five options on how students could resume classes come fall. And, like Cincinnati City Council before it, the board also fielded calls to remove police from its campuses.
Back in May, the Cincinnati Public School board voted unanimously to place a 10-year tax levy renewal on this November's ballot. The levy would bring in $65 million each year, which is 10% of the school district's budget.
Starting Tuesday at 10 a.m., the Cincinnati Public School Board of Education will begin accepting applications to fill the seat left vacant when Lannis Timmons resigned May 2. Applications can be found here. Applicants must also submit a cover letter, references and a resume.
