Hello! My name is Robert Ross and I am the Principal of the Cuyahoga East Vocational Education Consortium (CEVEC)! Welcome to the CEVEC webpage.
CEVEC serves many students from twenty-one school districts. Students are referred to CEVEC by their home school districts, and those students participate in various center-based and community based work and life skills experiences. At CEVEC, the individualized program fits the needs of each student.
With the mission statement of Educate-Empower-Employ, the talented team of CEVEC instructors, job trainers, and other transition specialists assist students and parents in building the bridge towards independence. Partnerships with dozens of area business and adult service agencies make CEVEC the premier resource for students and parents in preparation for success in all aspects of life after graduation. As a matter of fact, our 2019 graduating class demonstrate some impressive numbers with 98% of our graduates working, going on for further education, continuing their independence skills at an area day program provider, or a combination of all of these things. Our goal is to work with all stakeholders to realize a seamless transition to life after high school!
As the CEVEC programs nears the 40th year in operation, the vision for the future is to continue building upon the collaborative partnerships with all stakeholders, and to further develop and implement creative technology-based learning opportunities, as well as authentic learning experiences in our communities.
Again, welcome to the CEVEC website and I hope that you will take a minute to check out our Programs Offered section!
