School Climate and Culture
At Liberty, we recognize the importance of the social, emotional and physical well-being of every student in the district and are committed to fostering an atmosphere that supports it. Each school building implements its own set of programs and/or initiatives to improve its culture and climate, including:
- Attendance challenges
- Anti-bullying programs, presentations and speakers
- Buddy benches
- Conflict resolution strategies
- Family-school engagement opportunities
- Peer mentoring programs
- Positive behavior referrals
- Random acts of kindness
- Safe space classrooms
- Spirit weeks
- Student liaison meetings
- Student-administrator panels
- Motivational quotes of the day
A positive school culture and climate is developed through assessment, analysis and improvement. To that end, we encourage dialogue and invite students to play an active role in making their school a better place. We assess each school building’s culture on a regular basis and invite all students, parents and community members to share their thoughts and suggestions by reaching out to the appropriate principal.
When parents and family members are involved in their child’s school life, the student scores higher and achieves a higher level of success in their education. At Liberty Central School District, we prepare students for the future by providing the challenges and opportunities to develop strong academic skills, find a meaningful place in the school community and experience a joy for life-long learning and discovery.
Education is not just about earning a diploma, it’s about graduating with the knowledge and skills for life-long success.
One of our key goals is to create a friendly, welcoming environment for all of our families. We hope that monthly programs, like literacy nights, art walks, parent workshops and more, will be a great step in building a strong home to school partnership.
We design programs as a way to provide parents and families the opportunity to become full partners in their child’s education. By bringing the most important people in a child’s education–school district staff and their families–together in a collaborative way, we can ensure their success.
Through academic and social support programs, students are given a head start on achieving success. Take time to learn what is happening in your child’s school. Contact your child’s teacher anytime you have a question or concern.
