Denver Leaders Visit Long Beach Schools

Leaders from Denver Public Schools visited the Long Beach Unified School District this week to learn about LBUSD’s successful practices.

Denver’s school board president, superintendent and other top staff visited the central office and Cabrillo High School to learn about English language learner programs, special education, textbook adoptions, principal selection and leadership development, academic interventions and a variety of other topics regarding student achievement data, curriculum, instruction and training.

The Denver officials decided to visit Long Beach after learning about its successes from the Broad Foundation, which has repeatedly honored LBUSD as one of America’s best urban school districts.
