Board Goals

2015 – 2018 Board Goals

The Liberty Central School District Board of Education has set goals and priorities to help measure district success in relation to meeting community and state education standards. The following goals are divided into four categories (program, data, technology, fiscal) and serve as a guide for the board’s decision-making process throughout the school years.

Program

Long Range Goal: Student Achievement

Increase the graduation rate dramatically by creating a supportive and positive learning environment and by developing intervention programs and strategies to identify and assist at-risk students in grades Pre K-12 while providing a rigorous core curriculum tied to state standards, enrichment and acceleration opportunities for all students.

Priorities:

  • Develop and implement intervention strategies that assist at-risk students and provide pathways to become successful and deter dropping-out.
  • Implement school-wide strategies to reduce bullying and create a safe, supportive learning environment.

Data

Long Range Goal: Student Achievement

Increase student achievement and teacher success through the collection and use of data to drive improvements in instruction, student performance and the overall quality of the educational system within Liberty Central School District.

Priorities

  • Properly train administrators and teachers on the collection, compiling, distribution and interpretation of data.

  • Provide administrators and teaching staff time to have meaningful conversations about data-driven instruction (DDI) and how to utilize data to improve student performance.

Technology
