CINCINNATI - The smell of crayons and new books is in the air as the Tri-State's largest school district opens its doors Wednesday to begin a new year with new changes.
Thousands of students are returning to the Cincinnati Public School District Wednesday and all CPS high schools will now help middle school students in addition to high school students to gain better skills to prepare for college.
CPS is also opening two new buildings this year, Aiken New Tech and Aiken Carpe Diem, both located on Aiken High School’s campus.
Aiken New Tech, housing one thousand students combined with it’s attached charter school, Carpe Diem, will have a new tech center and renovations.
The $29 million New Aiken is the latest building under Cincinnati Public Schools’ decade-long, billion-dollar facilities master plan and something superintendent Mary Ronan says is very exciting for the district.
