Something Good is Happening in Our Schools

As part of its mission, the Greater Cleveland School Superintendents' Association features the accomplishments of a member's school district in its monthly newsletter under the heading, "Something Good Is Happening In Our Schools". This short article of approximately three hundred words highlights recent accomplishments of the school district and is shared with 273 school districts throughout the state.

Past Issues



Bob Timmons, Superintendent,
Polaris Career Center

At Polaris Career Center we are excited to expand STEM programming to students in grades seven and eight throughout our associate school districts. Thanks to a strong partnership with Project Lead the Way (PLTW), the nation’s leading provider of STEM education programs, Polaris will launch PLTW Gatewaythis fall. 

These classes will introduce young people to STEM related careers including:  flight and space, DNA and crime scene analysis, robotics, biomedical sciences and engineering.

Through the help and collaboration from our associate school leaders, we are opening new programs in 2015 in Berea, Olmsted Falls and Strongsville middle schools with additional sites slated for 2016. In all, we hope to reach over 2,000 seventh and eight graders. These programs are intended to create a pathway into our existing satellite programs that were created in 2008. Currently, Polaris serves over 850 students in high school satellite career-technical programs and an additional 954 students who are enrolled in programs at Polaris’ main campus.

For the first time in 31 years, Polaris is also preparing for a levy request in November to renovate and repurpose training labs. The 0.69 mill levy will enable us to purchase new equipment and repair our facility to meet the demands of the workplace of today AND tomorrow. At Polaris, we are all about jobs!  Training our students for a career path that gives them an edge in this fast paced economy is our purpose and our passion.
