    Hello Bearcat Family,

    This is a great time to be a part of BCSD! If you are new, we welcome you to THE best school district in Ohio, where every student can find the resources and the support they need to achieve excellence. If you are returning, welcome back!

    As Interim Superintendent, it is with much honor and grace, that I look forward to working with such amazing individuals every single day! There is no better feeling than the start of a new school year. Regardless of your role or title, we are all part of the Bearcat family and share in the excitement and anticipation that comes with our students back in the classroom five days a week! 

    My top priority, along with the Board of Education, is to ensure the safety of every member of the learning community. As we know, the community continues to be impacted by Covid-19. In addition, the CDC is requiring school districts to have a plan in place for the Monkeypox.

    In accordance with guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and the Cuyahoga County Board of Health, masks will be highly recommended for all students, staff, and visitors inside our schools and administrative sites — but not required. And as we know, our mitigation strategies could change as we continue to work closely with our public health experts to make informed decisions.  Again, our top priority is to ensure the health and safety of all members of the learning community as well as provide the best education possible to each student that we serve. This will be a team effort and we thank you in advance for your support and understanding.

    Let's make it a great year!

    Sincerely,
    Cassandra Johnson, Ph.D.
    Interim Superintendent
