Hear from City of Shaker Heights Mayor David Weiss

Mayor Weiss explains why he supports the Facilities Plan, and why he is urging residents to do the same.

“The approval of the master facilities a culmination of years of work and countless hours of research and thoughtful discussion. I am excited about the plan proposed and approved and am confident that the future of education in Shaker Heights is brighter than ever. I want to thank the members of the Board for their diligence and hard work, and I want to thank the Shaker community for its commitment and participation in this process.”


David Glasner, Ph.D.
Superintendent, Shaker Heights Schools

The Vision

The future of Shaker Schools includes an expansion of the district’s current Pre-K program with the goal of ensuring that all Shaker Heights students have access to a high quality preschool education. 

Includes renovating Ludlow Elementary School to accommodate an expanded Pre-K program; renovating and expanding Woodbury as a middle years building (Grades 6-8); renovating Boulevard, Lomond, Mercer and Onaway Elementary Schools and converting them to include Grade 5; building an addition to Fernway to accommodate Grade 5.

This will be a future ballot issue and will address the future of the Shaker Heights High School building.
