MCPS Diversity Initiative Recognized by Virginia Tech

Posted on: February 26, 2013

Moving Beyond Tolerance Toward Acceptance was recognized as a Virginia Tech School of Education 2013 Program of Distinction. Moving Beyond Tolerance Toward Acceptance is the social justice and diversity initiative that all students and staff members are participating in throughout Montgomery County schools.

“The program is a continuation of the efforts we have already made in the areas of social justice and diversity education,” said Sharon Zuckerwar, supervisor for social sciences and character education. “Teachers and students have shared that these opportunities to engage in conversation about our differences and similarities have been powerful."

MCPS will receive the award at the 2013 Virginia Association of School Superintendents’ conference in May.
