Cleveland Modernization Planning & Design
The Cleveland Comprehensive Planning Committee (CPC)
The Cleveland Comprehensive Planning Committee (CPC) is a group of school and community stakeholder representatives who will work together to help provide feedback for the Cleveland Comprehensive Plan. CPC members synthesize community-wide input and share the evolving details of the project with others in the community. The Committee includes parents, teachers, students, alumni, PPS staff and partners, community representatives and a school board member. While CPC members do not make decisions, their input is crucial in creating a design that the entire Cleveland community will be proud of.

Cleveland Modernization Project History - Conceptual Master Planning in 2019
In late 2019, after a series of public meetings over a four-month period, a Cleveland High School Conceptual Master Plan was completed as part of the planning effort for the 2020 Bond. The work was done through a Conceptual Master Planning Committee (CMPC), a group of school and community stakeholder representatives who worked together to help provide feedback for the Conceptual Cleveland Master Plan. The conceptual master planning process helped determine each school’s overall program needs, site layout, and more accurately determine the cost estimates for historic modernization vs. the rebuilding of that school and helped PPS in the planning of future capital improvement bonds.
This conceptual plan will be used as the starting point for the new Cleveland Comprehensive Plan, but the new Comprehensive Planning Committee (CPC) will not be restricted by those plans.

What Is Modernization?
Modernization will completely reconfigure and update learning spaces with a focus on indoor environmental quality, sustainability and historic preservation. Full modernizations retain the historic character of the school while bringing those buildings up to code and concurrently creating a more modern learning environment. In the case of Cleveland it may be determined that a partial or complete rebuild might be the best approach. This decision will be determined during conceptual master planning.

Thank you voters

Cleveland Modernization Timeline
Planning and Design is set to begin in early fall of 2023 with the development of a Cleveland Comprehensive Plan. The Planning and Design phase will continue over the next two years.
The 2020 Bond Program does not include funding to complete construction for the Cleveland High School and Ida B. Wells High School modernization projects. Money for the construction of those schools would need to come from a future school improvement bond. Until that happens, there is no schedule for future construction. The timing of a future bond and what projects are included in it are decisions made by the PPS School Board.
