Schoolhouse Beat

High school in Cleveland will be split into three separate schools

The Cleveland school district will split John F. Kennedy High School into three schools next fall. The Cleveland Plain Dealer reports that two new schools will be created under the JFK roof using a $3 million grant from the Carnegie Corporation; the existing JFK will remain as a third choice or it may be phased out over the next few years. Each of the new schools at JFK will be designed by a team of three teachers, four community members and a team leader that the district will hire. JFK now has about 800 students and is one of the system's worse-performing high schools, the district says.
