The Beachwood City School District's 2022 staff convocation in August focused on the areas of achievement, intercultural awareness and mental health through a unique cross-cultural excursion program. More than 300 staff members visited sites throughout greater Cleveland to learn to adapt to difference and create a more culturally responsive and inclusive school community.
Beachwood City Schools staff will use this knowledge to plan experiential learning opportunities for students that help them thrive in a multicultural world. Hear reflections from staff and view highlights from the excursions in the video below.
