Cleveland heads back to school sooner than usual

CLEVELAND -- Most Cleveland School District students return to school Wednesday, an earlier date than in the past.

Two high schools at the John Hay campus began even sooner, resuming classes Monday, while 14 other District schools will wait until next Monday. Four year-round high schools started their calendars July 28.

The district says the idea is to start back earlier in August to give students more time in class before Ohio standardized testing begins. The hope is that this improves test scores in the district.
