The state will approve their budget on May 7. At that time the district will know how to move forward with a summer school plan.
At Monday night’s regular Board of Education Meeting, the summer school state funding issue was discussed at great length and it was determined that should state funding be cut, LPS will offer a fee-based summer school program with the fee set at $300 per student attending. This fee would not be charged to students that have extended school year plans or credit recovery at the high school level.
The status of funding is currently an ever-changing situation at the state level. Liberty Public Schools is committed to giving our families an educational alternative for the month of June.
