Special Teams Package

An Effort Towards Increasing School Attendance

Special Teams

In 2017, we kicked off a new program with the Cleveland Metropolitan School District and the Cleveland Browns Foundation aimed at helping increase school attendance. Through referrals from CMSD’s Project ACT program that provides services to students living in temporary emergency shelters or transitional housing due to a loss of housing, economic hardship or similar situation, we provide a special package of three school uniforms, one casual outfit, socks, underwear and a shoe voucher card to help keep that student attending school during their difficult time. We track the student’s attendance and overall academic record before and after receiving the package to help determine the impact of the program.
