News from LPS

Career Navigators

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.

Graduate Profile

After several months of work led by the district's Strategic Leadership Team, which included engagement opportunities and feedback received from multiple stakeholder groups, the Liberty Public Schools Board of Education formally adopted both the Strategic Plan and Graduate Profile at Board of Education meeting. These plans will guide LPS into the future in an effort to provide learners with innovative, real-world experiences. To view the Graduate Profile, click here.

LPS Partnerships

A mutually beneficial partnership is one in which business and education work together toward a shared goal designed to benefit students while at the same time, achieving goals unique to each business partner. The intended outcome is that students will be prepared to be competitive employees and productive citizens in our own community. Through a partnership, your company is giving back to the community and providing positive public relations. Click here for more detailed information.
