Employees participate in Diversity Training & Goal-Setting

Perrysburg Schools recently merged its Diversity Committee and Diverse Learners Team into one group: CQ CommUNITY. The new team kicked off the school year with a retreat through RISE, Ross Initiative in Sports for Equality, founded by Stephen M. Ross, owner of the Miami Dolphins. On September 7, 21 faculty, staff members, administrators and coaches from Perrysburg Schools traveled to Detroit for a daylong training session based upon the data the school district has collected through community forums, surveys and focus groups. The day included diversity immersion experiences as well as setting goals for the school year.

The vision of the CQ CommUNITY is to support the school district’s mission and to ensure that the diverse talents, skills and experiences of the school community are valued, respected and supported. The intent of the committee is to:
•      Provide support to all students with diverse talents, experiences and backgrounds;
•      Educate and strengthen our staff members’ abilities, skills and understanding to support all students;
•      Broaden our scope by ensuring a diverse representation of the school and community;
•      Provide opportunities for community members to engage in activities that support the district’s mission; and
•      Assist the district in recruiting and retaining a diverse staff of administrators, teachers and support personnel
