The district is seeking volunteers to help us plan the 2021-22 school year.
It’s still too early to make predictions, but we are hopeful that by September 2021, updated CDC and NYS Public Health guidelines may allow the district to bring more students into our school buildings and that more extracurricular activities and events may resume.
That’s why we’re asking parents, students, Board of Education members, community members, LCSD teachers and staff, and representatives of Liberty’s community groups to join us as we prepare to welcome more students back into our schools. The Post-Pandemic Team will meet several times, with meetings held during the day and in the evenings.
If you are interested in joining the team, please fill out the Post-Pandemic Team Interest Form and help Liberty plan for a great new school year!
All Liberty schools will be on all remote learning on Wednesday, March 10 and Thursday, March 11.
Hybrid and in-person instruction for students will resume on Friday, March 12.
Student meals will be available for pick-up 9 a.m. until noon at the high school.
The Liberty Central School District is committed to providing your children with a high-quality education, embracing changes that meet their diverse needs, and forging strong relationships with our community. It’s important work, and your involvement is critical.
That’s why we’re once again asking parents and guardians of Liberty students to participate in our Diagnostic Tool for School and District Effectiveness (DTSDE) Survey, which is open Feb. 23 through March 12, 2021.
Survey questions address school leadership, curriculum, instruction, social-emotional learning, and parent and community engagement. It’s a great opportunity to have a community-wide conversation about how we can provide all students with the skills and support they need.
Parents and guardians will receive an email invitation and survey link, and you can take the survey on any computer, tablet or smartphone. You may also take the DTSDE Survey here. Paper surveys in English and Spanish are available in the front offices of all LCSD schools.
The district is partnering with K12 Insights, an independent research firm, to administer the survey and compile results. All responses are confidential and no one from the district will know who participates or how they respond, so please be candid. Teachers and students in grades 3-12 will also take the survey.
By working together, know we can prepare every student for success. Thank you for your continued support of the district and our students.

The Summer Immersion Program is 100 percent free and need-based stipends of up to $300 are available for those who qualify. Low tech? No tech? No problem! It is open to all girls and non-binary students who are currently in grades 9-11.
