What’s in store for Cleveland schools?


Dr. Eugene Sanders, CEO of the Cleveland Municipal School District since July 1, 2006, discussed his plans for guiding the Cleveland public schools toward greater academic progress last Friday at the City Club of Cleveland.


Sanders came to the Cleveland from the Toledo Public Schools, where he was the superintendent and CEO. During his six years in Toledo, he propelled the district into the position of the highest ranking large urban district in Ohio and one of only a handful of districts nationwide to meet the No Child Left Behind mandate of Adequate Yearly Progress (AYP).


Sanders spearheaded the development of the Toledo Schools’ single-gender elementary academies and led the district to sponsor three charter schools. He was part of the team that presented to Bill Gates and KnowledgeWorks foundations, which resulted in funding for a major high school reform—the smaller learning communities now operating at two district high schools. He proposed and garnered widespread support for the adoption of student uniforms.

Sanders has been honored with numerous awards including being named an Accomplished Graduate of Bowling Green State University and Ohio Superintendent of the Year by the Martha Holden Jennings Foundation. On behalf of the district, he accepted the NAACP’s national Daisy Bates Award, its highest award for closing the achievement gap.

Dr. Sanders received his Ph.D. in Educational Administration and Supervision, two Master’s Degrees, and an undergraduate degree from
Bowling Green State University.
