Dr. Shirley S. Schwartz Urban Education Impact Award
The Council of the Great City Colleges of Education, an affiliate group of deans working with urban school leaders, presents the Dr. Shirley S. Schwartz Urban Education Impact Award each year at the Council's Fall Conferences. The award is named in honor of Dr. Shirley S. Schwartz, the Council's Director of Special Projects and staff liaison with the colleges of education. The award honors an outstanding partnership between a university and an urban school district that has had a positive and significant impact on student learning.
The winner of the 2016 award was Cleveland Metropolitan School District and Cleveland State University for their Campus International School, based on the campus of CSU. The school includes kindergarten through eighth grade and is
popular with families, filling its seats by lottery every year and
keeping a waiting list. With the award, the Council gives a $2,000 scholarship to a Cleveland school graduate who will be attending Cleveland State University to pursue a career in education.
