A Great Start for New LB Staff Members

Proud_to_be_LB_(4)(3).png thumbnail176715

The Long Beach Public Schools welcomed new staff members with a two-day orientation that included presentations, workshops and discussions prior to the re-opening. Sessions prepared attendees for a smooth start and successful school year, with a commitment to educating the whole child and cultivating lifelong learners. 

The orientation covered all departments and subject areas, with particular emphasis on literacy initiatives and the International Baccalaureate Diploma Program as a framework for instruction. Technology was also a focus – the district has been enhancing learning opportunities with digital resources for many years, and these tools are increasingly important under current remote and hybrid instruction circumstances. 

The new staff members also reviewed district policies and procedures and had opportunities to get to know their administrators and colleagues.
