Black History Month draws to a close with “Lift Ev’ry Voice and Sing”

In recognition of Black History Month, Liberty High School shared this video featuring “Lift Ev’ry Voice and Sing” performed by LHS Assistant Principal Tiffane Barrow. The film highlights the people and events that helped to reshape and redefine the Black experience in America.

About the song

In 1899, a young poet and school principal James Weldon Johnson was asked to address a crowd in Jacksonville, Fla., for the coming anniversary of Abraham Lincoln’s birthday. Just two decades had passed since the Reconstruction era, and lynchings were on the rise in the segregated South. Instead of preparing an ordinary speech, Johnson wrote a poem. He began with a simple but powerful line, a call to action: Lift ev’ry voice and sing.

Johnson’s classically trained brother, John Rosamond Johnson, later put music to James’s words. The song was embraced as a hymn in churches and performed at graduation ceremonies and school assemblies. Within 20 years, the NAACP adopted “Lift Ev’ry Voice and Sing” as its official song. For generations it has been known widely as the “Black National Anthem.”

District-Wide Safety Plan Updated | Public comment period ends March 23

The Liberty Central School District has updated the 2020-21 District-Wide Safety Plan to reflect legislation signed into law by Governor Cuomo in September of 2020. The new legislation requires the adoption of a response plan for health emergency events involving a communicable disease.

Review the New Protocols

The approval process for updates to the safety plan involves a review by the District Safety Team followed by a 30-day public comment period. In Liberty, the public comment is effect through March 23, 2021

To submit your comments, please email Dr. Patrick Sullivan, Assistant Superintendent.

Mandate for public employee

The new legislation requires all New York State public employers to adopt a plan for operations in the event of a declared public health emergency involving a communicable disease. The new legislation will constitute New York State Labor Law Section 27-c, and serves as a response to the effects of the sudden onset of the COVID-19 pandemic this past Spring.

Mandate for School Districts

In addition to Section 27-C, the following section was added to 2801-a of the Education Law that will require additions to the District Plan: 2801-a (m) – protocols for responding to a declared public health emergency involving a communicable disease that are substantially consistent with the provisions of section twenty-seven-c of the labor law.

Timeline

Governor Cuomo extended the original deadline (30 days after the passage of the law) to allow employers and school districts time to implement the process and work out logistics with unions and other affected agencies. The NYS website states that such a plan must be finalized and published by April 1, 2021.

The LCSD Board of Education is expected to adopt the updated Safety Plan at its March 23 meeting.
