Bratenahl School Board

This photo shows the Bratenahl School Board during its fight to retain the Bratenahl school district. Because the district had already promised to merge with Cleveland schools, the formation of the Bratenahl High School made no difference to the state. Bratenahl was still required to merge. So Bratenahl took the state to court and won. The state then appealed the case, and Bratenahl lost. This battle of appeals by the village and the state continued for twelve years, ending with the final defeat of Bratenahl in 1980.
