The Long Beach Public Schools’ newest staff members received a warm welcome during a three-day orientation program on Aug. 24, 25 and 26. They were introduced to administrators and Board of Education members and attended a variety of presentations and professional development workshops.
The sessions focused on all aspects of district programs, goals and procedures, with specific emphasis on literacy, technology, special education and the International Baccalaureate Diploma Program.
