More National Recognition for Achievements in the Canton City Schools
There is more to Canton, Ohio than the Pro Football Hall of Fame. Indeed, all the legendary moments enshrined within the Hall pale in comparison to the feats of wonder happening every day within the walls of Canton City Schools (CCS). - Education Executive Magazine
Noting that the Canton City Schools is setting "an example for what an urban school district can do despite the scourges of poverty and unemployment," Education Executive Magazine has featured the district and Superintendent Michele Evans in a nationally circulated article, Canton City Schools: Forward Progress.
The article comes in the wake of recognition last March by General Colin Powell's America's Promise Alliance in Building a Grad Nation. At that time, the Alliance noted, "the gains Canton has made over the past decade are real. Canton has made important progress and has already shown the innovation and initiative that suggest it can continue to chart a course toward more improvement."
Education Executive Magazine agrees, saying that "thanks to efforts underway with McKinley, Timken, McGregor, ECHS, as well as initiatives like career technical education and alternative education programs, CCS is demonstrably making progress and blazing a trail toward even greater improvements in the future."
Education Executive Magazine is circulated to more than 30,000 senior education leaders and executives across the nation.
