Board of Education

The Board of Education is the official policy-making body of the Liberty Central School District. It establishes operational policies, sets educational goals and standards, evaluates program effectiveness, develops the annual school budget and balances educational needs with community resources.

Meetings are typically held 6:30 p.m. on the second and fourth Tuesday each month in the high school media center. In addition, the board holds executive sessions, which the public cannot attend. These sessions may precede or follow the regular meeting and are for the discussion of personnel and legal matters.

The next BOE meeting is Aug. 31, 2021
