This website provides information about the Cleveland Education Compact. 
Funded by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, the Compact facilitates increased collaboration between 
the Cleveland Metropolitan School District and approximately 65 public charter schools in the Cleveland area.



The Cleveland Education Compact creates a framework through which members collaborate as partners in our city-wide effort to improve education for all students. Members of the Compact believe that Cleveland’s families deserve better schools and a broader choice of excellent schools. 


The structure of the Compact is designed to build relationships, share information, monitor progress, and set goals. The Executive Board meets regularly to guide and oversee the creation and development of the Compact to ensure it success.


Subcommittees are comprised of individuals from the organizations which sign-on to the Compact.  They will tackle such topics as policy, record sharing, and special education; developing a plan of action, seeking out applicable resources, and fostering collaborative changes.
