CWC Cincinnati will be an intentionally diverse school that will mirror the diversity of the surrounding community in terms of race, ethnicity, and socioeconomic status. We expect that diversity to be reflected not just among our students but amongst our staff, as well.
CWC Cincinnati’s mission is built on a commitment to diversity. This commitment explicitly includes ensuring that all students, including students with learning differences, receive a full continuum of services. We have a number of structures built into our learning model which ensure that we meet the needs of each child. This includes multiple teachers and support staff in each classroom, small-group instruction, and dedicated planning time each day for teachers to modify lessons to meet the needs of individual students. Our workshop model provides for substantial independent work time, which allows teachers to meet with small groups of students and with individual students. In addition, the school will follow an inclusive model which allows special education staff to push into classrooms with one-on-one support when needed, rather than pulling students out of the classroom.
The Executive Director of CWC Cincinnati is responsible for the day-to-day operations of the region and manages the principal and other leaders in the region. CWC Cincinnati schools is governed by a locally-based, not-for-profit board of governors that sets policy and has fiduciary responsibility for the school. CWC Cincinnati board meetings are open to the public and we post all agendas on our website.
