EUCLID, OH (WOIO) –
In June of 2014, St. John of the Cross Parish will close its school and enter into a partnership with Ss. Robert & William Parish to support one school, commencing in the 2014-2015 school year.
The school will be located at the current Ss. Robert & William site, 351 East 260th St., Euclid, and will now serve both parishes. Declining enrollment at SJOC has been cited as the reason for this new endeavor. In general, Catholic school enrollment throughout the country has been on the decline and, in Euclid, it is no exception.
A leadership team has been formed to oversee the transition and future of the school. It is comprised of Fr. Sal Ruggeri (Pastor SJOC), Fr. John Betters (Pastor SRW), Mrs. Martha Dodd (Current Principal of SJOC) and Ms. Meg Cosgriff (Current Principal of SRW).
