“In Cuyahoga County, our schools educate a very diverse population of students. Recognizing this diversity, it is even more important for teachers to have as much information as possible about each child at the outset so their classroom and teaching can effectively address the multiple strengths and challenges students will bring to the first day of school.” Bob Mengerink, Superintendent, Educational Service Center
