Community Engagement

Community Engagement

Effective community engagement should be grounded in a process that supports the ability to place the parent and community voice as essential to improving schools. We believe this process should include the following elements:
  • Building strategic relationships
  • Engaging stakeholders
  • Utilizing external viewpoints
  • Sharing how community input informs goals
The Warrensville Heights City School District is committed to developing strong partnerships with all stakeholders, including families, staff, community members and business leaders in order to improve and enhance scholar achievement. District leaders recognize, respect and encourage all participants to become involved in activities and decisions made for and on behalf of our scholars. We will assist in promoting this philosophy of collaborative partnerships where engagement and shared responsibility are encouraged.

One of the District's largest community engagement initiatives is Tiger 100, a volunteer program in which everyone – parents, non-parents, grandparents, students, senior citizens – can assist in inspiring confidence and encouraging success in our scholars. To learn more about Tiger 100 and other community engagement initiatives, please contact Dawnyell Smiley at dawnyell.smiley@whcsd.org or 216-865-4741.
