What is CQ?

CQ stands for cultural intelligence. The CQ CommUNITY is committed to Perrysburg Schools’ effort to cultivate cultural intelligence and to support, value and respect diversity, inclusion and equity.
• Diversity means intentionally representing people from a variety of backgrounds.
• Inclusion means intentionally engaging people from a variety of backgrounds and creating an environment in which all feel a sense of belonging.
• Equity is the intentional practice of ensuring that policies or practices do not innately inhibit a person from achieving their greatest potential.

Recent and Ongoing Projects


Full Experience Fund
Each year, there are hundreds of families in Perrysburg facing financial hardship. As a result, many students do not have the means to participate in the experiences that are such a large part of what it means to be a Yellow Jacket. With that in mind, the Perrysburg Schools Foundation, in partnership with the CQ CommUNITY, created the Full Experience Fund.

Student Groups Created To-Date

• African American Club
• Bible Club
• Direct Student Supports with the Student and Family Engagement Liaison
• Genders/Sexuality Alliance Club
• International and Diversity Club
• Muslim Student Association
• ROX – Ruling Our Experiences

These groups were created to provide a variety of opportunities for students to engage with others who have similar interests and to create a community that celebrates diverse backgrounds and allows the exchange of ideas.

Employee Education

Meeting the Needs of Diverse Learners Conference is an annual training event for Perrysburg Schools employees that promotes the inclusion of all learners. At this conference, employees choose from a variety of professional development sessions. We invite our own employees to present on topics of their choice and take suggestions from others internally for outside speakers.
