Task force listing safety, academics matters in Liberty schools
LIBERTY -- The task force formed to address safety and academic issues in the Liberty school system is making a list of questions and concerns, and looking to the school board for the answers.
Community members involved in the Liberty Schools Task Force met for the third time, but this time school board members were on hand. The board and members of the school district administration were there to answer any immediate questions.
The task force, which is now divided into three subcommittees, is devising a ranked list of recommendations for the board and developing an understanding of what will need to happen to make those recommendations a reality. The suggestions and concerns will be presented to the board in a matter of weeks.
"The community members are going to make preliminary recommendations for the board to consider March 14 and will present final recommendations to the board in April," said Board President Frank Gorsuch.
According to Gorsuch, it is difficult to determine when the board will know what recommendations from the task force it will attempt to make a reality because some of those recommendations might require more research than others.
He said the board will be looking to accomplish as much as possible from the task force recommendations.
