News from LPS
In an effort to increase career readiness for all students, Liberty Public Schools now has Career Navigators for both high school campuses. This position works directly with students to promote career activities, such as job shadowing opportunities for grades 9-12 and helps place students in internships with area businesses for grades 11-12. Dustin Sollars is at Liberty North. Tim Anderson is at Liberty High.
Job shadowing typically lasts from 1-4 hours. Internships offer more experiential learning for 4 days per week for about 90 minutes daily.
If your business is interested in either of these opportunities, please contact Colleen Jones.
