Here’s how many CPS employees complied with district’s vaccine mandate

The Cincinnati Public Schools main office in the Corryville neighborhood of Cincinnati on Monday, Feb. 1, 2021.

More than 400 Cincinnati Public Schools employees became vaccinated since the board unanimously approved a mandatory vaccination policy for staff in mid-September, officials said.

The district is at a 99.99% compliance rate with the policy, with only one employee refusing to comply. District officials told The Enquirer that the lone individual will be put on unpaid leave and the termination process will begin.

"I want to thank our incredible staff for prioritizing safety and helping keep our classrooms open in person," interim superintendent Tianay Amat said during a Monday evening board meeting.

The district was the first in the state to require its staff to be vaccinated against the novel coronavirus, and the first Ohio school system to implement such a policy. There are about 6,500 full- and part-time employees serving 36,000 students in the district, according to its website. It is the third-largest school district in Ohio.
