Cuyahoga Heights PreK Program Earns 5-Star Step Up to Quality Rating

The Cuyahoga Heights Schools Pre-Kindergarten program recently received a 5-Star rating from Step Up to Quality, the highest rating from Ohio’s Tiered Quality Rating and Improvement System for early learning and development programs.  To obtain the five-star rating, the Cuyahoga Heights Schools went above and beyond the requirements for the first three rating levels by earning additional points in key areas.  Those areas include providing individualized instruction aligned with student interests and learning needs, using assessment data to evaluate student learning and adjust classroom instruction accordingly, and maintaining a strong partnership with parents through regular communications and providing learning resources for use at home.  The district also places a strong emphasis on professional development for all staff and administrators, which includes a professional growth plan based on preschool student growth and development. 

Students enrolled in the Pre-Kindergarten Program are taught by licensed teachers and teacher assistants and attend school five-days per week during the morning or afternoon for 2.5 hours each day.  Instruction includes a state approved curriculum and assessment program, lessons that promote social interaction, and phonics instruction for students who are developmentally ready. The program features a low staff to child ratio and incorporates technology into the classroom, including an interactive TV, touch-screen computers and iPads.  Students also have access to specials such as art, music, Physical Education, Guidance Counselors, library and technology instruction. Congratulations to the teachers, staff and administrators who contributed to the district’s Pre-Kindergarten program receiving a 5-Star Step Up to Quality rating!
