Liberty Public Schools is now in Step 3 of the Long Range Planning Process - Planning Criteria. 

This phase of the Long Range Plan is where we define the priorities and objectives that will guide the options we explore in Step 4.  In an effort to gain your input, we have put together a menu of planning criteria that may fit the desires of Liberty Public Schools.  This is a draft list of 16 potential criteria statements that explain what the District wants the Long Range Plan to address. With that said, many of them may need revised and tweaked until they fit Liberty perfectly.  So please give us your honest feedback when responding and use that comment box to tell us exactly what you are thinking.  We will use this information to guide our discussion and formation of the final planning criteria.

To take the survey, click here.  We appreciate the feedback from our valued LPS stakeholders!
