REPORT OF THE POLICY COMMITTEE’S SCHOOL CLOSURES AND MERGERS AD HOC COMMITTEE
The Policy Committee’s School Closures and Mergers Ad Hoc Committee met on Wednesday, May 9, 2012 at 12:00 PM at the
Cincinnati Public Schools Education Center in the Board Office Conference Room.
FOR BOARD INFORMATION
Introductions
Policy Committee Member Bates advised the group that the work of the Ad Hoc Committee is to create a draft and timeline of
a School Closures and Mergers Policy that outlines processes if the need arises for the closing and merging of schools.
The goal is to be transparent in providing adequate notice to the community and parents if the District is faced with closing or
merging of schools. The purpose is to also let parents know what to expect when a school is going to be closed or merged.
Kristi Schwartz of the Cincinnati Business Committee updated the Committee on research that she conducted on the closing
and merging of schools. She reported that the information on school closures was limited and how decisions are made and how
schools are closed was critical to creating the smoothest and least painful transition for students and parents.
She also noted that it was very important to provide adequate notice of the possibility of closure and publicizing objective
criteria by which decisions will be made.
Information about her research can be located at: www.ncsrp.org. “Charter School Research: Working Papers - Closing
Troubled Schools” #2008-8
School Closures and Mergers Policy Discussion
Eric Thomas, Director for the Office of Innovations, updated the Committee on a draft of the policy.
The Committee advised Mr. Thomas to make sure the policy is comprehensive and overarching to encompass financial and
academic measures.
ACTION:
During the month of September, the Administration will create a list of how schools are ranked academically
and announce it to the Board, parents and the public.
Based on the rankings and the recommendations of the School Performance Team, a one-year notice of
schools that are consistently underperforming will be announced to the public and parents. The
announcement will advise parents that the school could possibly close or be merged if the academic
performance of that school has not improved the next school year.
Example: School underperforming in year 2013—Announce to the public in year 2013 that if performance
has not improved for school year 2014, the school may be faced with closing or merging in year 2015.
Committee Meeting
The Ad Hoc Committee will conduct its next meeting on Thursday, May 17, 2012 at 12:00 PM. The Committee will review
current policies that reference the closing of programs, mergers and closings of schools at the May 17 meeting.
