Cleveland City School leaders have been working tirelessly to hire additional school bus drivers to ensure routes are not disrupted. However, we are asking for patience as adjustments are made to cover routes on the first day of school. If you have registered your child for transportation, you will be notified of their bus number, stop, and pickup time a week before classes start if your child is eligible for bus transportation. This information will be sent to the primary contact on your child’s registration through email and text message. If you have trouble receiving this information, you can call the Operations Department (423) 472-9576.

Families can learn more about deployment, registration and open house by visiting their school’s page on our website.

Cleveland City Schools continues to be a top school system in Tennessee due to the hard work and dedication from our staff, teachers, and families. Our partnership with families ensures a supportive learning environment for our students.

Thank you for your continued support.
