Cleveland schools got a report card from the state that was expected but still very disappointing.

In nine new letter-graded categories, the district received 6 Fs, 2 Cs and 1 D. But the snapshot and results came from where schools were in March.

Schools were still coping with massive teacher layoffs, a shorter school day and overcrowded classes.

Mayor Frank Jackson who rallied voters to approve a school levy for a transformation plan that promises big improvement kept the results in perspective.

“Anytime you get these results you should not be happy. But this is something we did before….Yesterday’s news…That’s over with, move on,” he said.
