Dear Friends of the Brooklyn City Schools-
Excitement and energy continue to characterize the first few months of the 2018-2019
School Year, and such was the case earlier this week when a great opportunity was
presented to the District by the promotions team from the Cleveland Cavaliers. The
Brooklyn City Schools’ campus was selected as the staging ground for a promotional
video that required a classroom setting and which featured “Moon Dog,” the team’s official
mascot, along with some of our very own Brooklyn students. The handful of students who
were selected were those who have received multiple positive referrals through the
District’s Positive Behavior Supports Initiative (P.B.I.S.). The video will be featured on the
Jumbotron at The “Q,” as well as on the Cavaliers’ website after January 1, 2019. See the
picture below, and be sure to check this video out when it is released.
The Brooklyn City Schools will host its third School Finance Forum on Tuesday, October 23,
2018, at 6 p.m. in the High School Auditorium. This presentation includes a summary of why
the District is pursuing Issue 3, outlines the $14 million in State of Ohio cuts over a 12-year
period of time and will also feature an update on the 5-Year Forecast by Treasurer David
Hoskin. If you have not attended one of these informative presentations, please mark your
calendar for this important event. The goal of the Brooklyn City Schools has always been
to provide many opportunities for individuals to become informed about Issue 3 and the
current state of District finances. In addition to this third School Finance Forum, the following activities are taking place, in coordination with the Support Our Schools Committee, over the next week:
• Saturday, October 20, 2018, 10 a.m., Door Knocking. Meet at Board Office.
• Monday, October 22, 2018, 6 p.m., Phone Calling. Meet in Media Center.
• Tuesday, October 23, 2018, 6 p.m., School Finance Forum. Meet in HS Auditorium.
Be sure to visit the District website and social media for future and continued updates from
the Brooklyn City Schools. Thank you for the support our community shows our District!
Dr. Mark Gleichauf
Superintendent of Schools
