The Cuyahoga Falls Board of Education has established four focus areas through the strategic planning process entitled CF Vision 20/20:
- We are committed to college and career readiness – our students will develop 21st century skills through authentic learning experiences; their technology skills and competencies will be increased by way of integration into core subject areas; and, we will ensure that graduates are prepared for success by increasing the credentialing process in the high school.
- We are committed to establishing a culture of excellence – we will involve parents by providing authentic opportunities to engage; we will increase student attendance by way of improving the culture in our buildings; and, we will generate a wide-spread sense of community pride in the schools.
- We are committed to community engagement – we will develop a community survey to gauge the level of “membership” amongst the residents of our district; we will work with city leaders to establish means of two-way communication; and, we will monitor the perception that our stakeholders have of our district.
- We are committed to leveraging facilities and resources – we will work with the Ohio School Facilities Commission and others to determine the feasibility of renovation and/or reconstruction of the buildings in our district; we will recommend the most feasible Master Plan to the community for review; and, we will implement strategies to maximize the efficacy of the systems of operations in our district.
What does the Board of Education Do?
The Board of Education sets policy and direction for the Cuyahoga Falls City School District and exerts a continuing supervisory responsibility by acting on all contracts, payment of monies, employment, program quality, and development of effective educational programs.
In addition, the Board engages annually in a long-range planning process that identifies specific goals and objectives for the school district. These goals and objectives are tied directly to the district's annual budget.
The Board Meeting
Residents of our Cuyahoga Falls City Schools community are encouraged to attend Board of Education meetings. The meeting schedule is on the right of this page.
Ohio's Sunshine Law mandates that school board meetings be open to the public with the exception of executive sessions. In an executive session, the Board may discuss, but not vote, on personal matters, property purchases, possible legal action, employee negotiations, security arrangements, and items the law says must be kept confidential.
If residents wish to speak to the Board, time is set aside during the meeting for citizens to discuss issues or concerns.
