The future of Liberty-Benton Local Schools is bright! Thank you to everyone who voted in support of our schools in the May elections. Also, a heartfelt thanks to the dozens of volunteers and supporters who dedicated countless hours, tirelessly and enthusiastically, for our schools because they believe in them and in our community.
It is important to note that our community’s role in student success is not limited to the passage of this ballot issue and I hope you will continue to support our goal of equipping each Liberty-Benton graduate with the skills and mindset necessary to reach their potential academically and in life.
A school district’s community plays a critical role in providing meaningful educational opportunities both in and out of the classroom. Because of community support, we can adequately address our educational facility needs without diverting funds away from our daily operating budget. We will soon begin the process of ensuring our students the school facilities that match the great teaching they receive. The new facilities and renovations will provide exciting learning spaces that will serve our students for years to come!
There will be opportunities in the coming months to provide feedback and stay engaged in this process and we hope to continue to partner with our community on this exciting new phase of the journey. As we move forward, I can assure you that we are committed to finalizing and following a plan that is rooted in our history of strong fiscal management and meeting the needs of our entire school community
I look forward to what the future holds for Liberty-Benton Local Schools and our school community. These will be exciting times and I am proud to be part of it!
