Deal near on high school site

The Cincinnati Enquirer

        The new Entrepreneurship High School for Cincinnati Public Schools appears close to pinning down a downtown site.

        CPS administrators are completing a partnership agreement with the city of Cincinnati that would locate the school in the 1600 block of Central Parkway.

        The Entrepreneurship High School is one of five new high school programs being offered for ninth-graders this year. The school is intended to prepare students for college and careers in small businesses and enterprises.

        The school expects to enroll up to 125 students this year and add one grade each year until reaching an enrollment of about 400 students by 2005-06. Twenty-five students have registered so far.

        While the building is renovated for school use, plans call for the ninth-grade program to be located in a wing of Jacobs Center in Winton Hills from August to December. The renovation cost could be offset by a proposed agreement with the city that would eliminate the lease or purchase costs.

        Although students are interested, marketing the program has been challenging without a principal or a site, said Janet Walsh, district spokeswoman.

        A principal is expected to be hired Monday.
