Mike Cohen too second place in the Help Desk category at the national FBLA competition

More than 9,500 of America’s best and brightest high school students traveled to Texas to Create. Lead. Inspire, as they competed for the opportunity to win more than $179,000 in cash awards.

The Future Business Leaders of America (FBLA) National Leadership Conference was held June 29–July 2 in San Antonio. Participants from across the United States and abroad attended this exciting conference to enhance their business skills, expand their networks, and participate in more than 70 business and business-related competitive events.

Michael Cohen from Liberty High School in Liberty, NY received national recognition at the FBLA Awards of Excellence Program on July 2. Cohen competed in Help Desk and brought home second place. Help Desk is a competition-oriented around developing skills in the field of Information Technology. The participant is given a prompt dealing with a given user that needs technological assistance. From here, the competitor must professionally design and implement a solution that properly fits the customer’s needs. “It’s such an honor to represent my hometown and my school in this way. My experience in the Future Business Leaders of America organization has provided me with incredible opportunities that I would not have otherwise,” said Michael, President of Liberty’s FBLA.

The award was part of a comprehensive national competitive events program sponsored by FBLA-PBL that recognizes and rewards excellence in a broad range of business and career-related areas. For many students, the competitive events are the capstone activity of their academic careers. In addition to competitions, students immersed themselves in interactive workshops, visited an information-packed exhibit hall, and heard from motivational speakers on a broad range of business topics.

Chromebooks to be distributed to all HS students

For the 2019-2020 school year, all students at Liberty High School will be issued a Chromebook that may be used at school and at home to enhance their educational opportunities and experiences. The mission of the District’s 1:1 Chromebook Initiative is to ensure that all students in grades 9-12 have access to the digital tools and resources to allow them to be successful learners at the high school and outside of the school day. Additionally, this will provide equal access to technology for our students and staff. To help reach this goal, we will provide our students with digital devices that can expand their learning opportunities.

We would like to help parents and students better understand these opportunities and responsibilities associated with the new devices. With this in mind, parents of 9th-12th grade students must attend our parent information session before we can issue a Chromebook to your child in September 2019. Our parent information session will be held from 6:30 p.m. – 7:00 p.m. on Wednesday, August 28, 2019 in the LHS David E. Panebaker Auditorium. Any parent who will be unable to attend the August informational meeting will be required to either view our informational video online (the link will be provided at a later date) or attend the informational session at Open House on September 12, 2019. In addition, parents and students must complete the “LCSD Student/Parent Device Agreement” form located in the back of the User Guide and return it to the High School Main Office where it will be kept on file. This must be turned in prior to being issued a Chromebook in September 2019. Chromebooks will be collected prior to classes ending in June.

Students will be provided with information about the care and use of their Chromebook during Homeroom at the beginning of the 2019-2020 school year. This will allow the students to better understand the benefits of the program and the responsibilities that they have as part of the 1:1 Chromebook Initiative.

If you have any questions or concerns about attending the informational session, please feel free to contact the LHS Main Office at 845-292-5400, extension 2005.

Learn more about the 2020 Census here

The 2020 Census is much more than just a headcount. It provides a picture of our community that helps determine where to build new schools, hospitals, and businesses. Responding to the census also helps communities get the funding they need and helps businesses make data-driven decisions that grow the economy.

Census data impacts our daily lives, informing important decisions about funding for services and infrastructure in our community, including health care, senior centers, roads, and political representation. It also helps us see how our communities have changed over time. That’s why an accurate count is so important.

Your census responses are safe and secure. The census bureau is required by law to protect all personal information, and it is strictly confidential. Your answers cannot be used against you by any court or governmental agency, including the FBI, CIA, Department of Homeland Security, or U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement.

For the first time, the U.S. Census Bureau will accept responses online, by phone, and by mail, to ensure the process is secure and convenient for everyone. This new system makes the questionnaire easy to complete.
