CLEVELAND, OH (WOIO) - Many Cleveland school students will be attending different schools this year. It comes in response to the school transformation plan.

There have been some concerns from parents about their children's safety this school year.

So in an effort to diffuse some of those concerns, the Cleveland Division of Police, Community Relations Board (CRB) and the Cleveland Metropolitan School District (CMSD) will host a series of neighborhood meetings to inform the community of the school safety plans developed for the 2010-2011 school year.

During the past months, CMSD in partnership with the Cleveland Community Relations and the Division of Police developed plans to ensure the safety of the children in school, in the neighborhoods traveling to and from school, and to make the community aware of how they can be involved in strengthening and implementing the plan.

The attendees at the meeting will include, but are not be limited to Cleveland Chief of Police Michael McGrath, neighborhood Police District Commanders, CRB staff, CMSD Chief Lester Fultz, CMSD District Supervisors, school principals, and community leaders.
