Liberty teachers were in class for much of the Feb. 14 Superintendent’s Conference Day.

It was a day off for Liberty Central School District students, but teachers and administrators were hard at work on Friday, Feb. 14, a Superintendent’s Conference Day.

Liberty’s Elementary, Middle and High School educators spent the day immersed in workshops, discussions, and other professional development opportunities.

The day included an in-depth session on Trauma-Informed Care and the effects of adverse childhood experiences on the brain. This training’s aim is to guide staff towards infusing trauma-responsive practices into their daily work.

Superintendent’s Conference Days are required by the New York State Education Department, and Liberty scheduled five for the 2019-2020 school year. Ongoing professional development keeps teachers up-to-date on new research, emerging classroom technologies, new curriculum resources and more.

Conference Days are also a chance to review state-mandated materials, go over safety protocols, and  build school culture.

Liberty’s next Superintendent’s Conference Day is March 13.
