Superintendent Shares what “Destination Cincinnati” Means to Her in Latest Episode of “Making Progress” Podcast


These days, it’s not out of the ordinary to see Cincinnati listed among the best places to work and live. Superintendent Laura Mitchell and the Cincinnati Public School District are hard at work to ensure that CPS is one of the city’s main attractions and a key driver of economic development.

“Thriving cities and thriving schools are linked,” said Mitchell. “We believe that CPS should be part of the city’s succession planning strategy.”

In the latest episode of “Making Progress with Laura Mitchell,” Mitchell sits down with Eric Kearney, President & CEO of the Greater Cincinnati & Northern Kentucky African American Chamber of Commerce, to discuss what “Destination Cincinnati” means to her, as well as share some important updates about new schools expected to open and improvements in the district’s community learning centers.

“Destination Cincinnati” is now available for listening on Soundcloud. Learn about:

  • The host of strategies behind “Destination Cincinnati” that help students identify one of the “Three E’s” (employed, enlisted, enrolled) as a pathway to pursue after high school
  • How CPS is accommodating increased enrollment and the collaborative process behind the new Westwood campus (formerly Mother of Mercy High School) and Clifton Area Neighborhood Schools
  • The exciting partnerships that help with anything from connecting students to promising employment opportunities after high school to reinforcing the district’s unique Community Learning Center model.
