Now offering Remote Learning Centers in partnership with Cleveland Metropolitan School District

We are excited to announce that we have partnered with CMSD to offer Remote Learning Centers for the upcoming school year. These centers, operating in Open Doors Academy Main Office and The Foundry, will be safe, out-of-home spaces for a limited number of scholars to complete their remote learning.

What are Remote Learning Centers (RLCs)?

These will be safe, supervised out-of-home locations where CMSD scholars can do their remote learning.


Why is ODA & Breakthrough offering RLCs?

We are working to support our families in as many ways as we can during these challenging times. We hope RLCs can provide safe, supervised, and distraction-free places for scholars to learn.


Who is eligible for RLCs?

Any enrolled CMSD family is eligible to sign up for an RLC; however, we will only be able to offer a certain number of spaces due to social distancing. In order to be eligible, please complete the required registration below if you are interested and in need. Seats will be limited.


Will transportation be provided?
No. Parents/guardians are responsible for providing transportation.


When will RLCs be open?

CMSD RLC’s are now open.

Quick What will the hours be for the RLCs?
Our current plan is for RLCs to operate Tuesday through Friday, 8am–4pm.


Where will RLCs be located?
We are currently considering RLCs to be located at six Breakthrough campuses; however, campuses will be determined by demand and preference.


Can I pick which RLC to attend?

In the application below, you will be asked to indicate your most preferred location and other locations you could be able to get your child to on a daily basis.

After registering, you will be assigned a building. Building demand will indicate where you will ultimately be placed.


What about ODA Programming?

In addition to the support from ODA during the school day, traditional ODA programming will be offered both before and afterschool.


How can I enroll?

Enrolling is as easy as ABC:

A. ACTIVATE Your File! To participate, your child needs to be enrolled at a CMSD School. To complete the pre-enrollment form, click here.
B. BE Alert!  Before your scholar can be placed in a classroom, additional forms must be completed. Be on the look out for these forms! Once we receive these completed forms, we will begin to place scholars into classrooms.
C. CONFIRM Your Spot! If selected, you will receive a letter that will indicate confirmation of placement for your scholar(s) with final details such as start date, orientation information, contact information, etc.

Other important notes:

  • You may enroll up to 5 siblings at once
  • Completion of steps A & B does not guarantee enrollment.

We’re in this together.

Academic instruction and lessons will be delivered remotely by CMSD teachers while the ODA team provides in-person support, supervision, and care for your kids. ODA Staff will continue to implement ODA programming for you scholar(s) at the RLC sites during this time both before and afterschool.
